On Chesil Beach

Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes

“They were young, educated and both virgins on their wedding night”. Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own Booker Prize-winning novellas, On Chesil Beach is the complex story of two young newlyweds navigating the struggles of societal pressure on their honeymoon. Confused, uncertain and hopelessly ill-equipped to talk honestly of their fears and desires, they do not yet know that this tragicomic situation will shape the rest of their lives. A beautifully precise and searching film exploring the regressive effects of ‘propriety’.
