Based on Ian McEwan’s acclaimed novella, On Chesil Beach follows Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle), a young couple on their honeymoon at the English seaside in 1962. Florence, raised in a cold prison of middle class repression, sees Edward as her promise of freedom. The couple arrive at Chesil Beach guest house in love and ready to begin their new life, but hopelessly ill-equipped to spend their first night together.

“A tender and valuable film, well acted, with a shrewd eye” The Guardian
