Collection of four British dramas. In '45 Years' (2015), during the run-up to their 45th wedding anniversary, Kate (Charlotte Rampling) and Geoff Mercer (Tom Courtenay) are rocked by the news that the body of Geoff's former fiancée has been discovered in the Swiss Alps, 50 years after she disappeared on a walking holiday with Geoff. Although Kate knew of Geoff's first love he kept their engagement a secret. As Geoff reminisces about his past and debates whether to fly to Switzerland to formally identify the body, his wife is left to re-evaluate their long relationship. While Kate finalises preparations for their anniversary party, she begins to delve deeper into her husband's past and makes new discoveries that threaten to spell the end for their 45-years of marriage. In 'The Deep Blue Sea' (2011) Rachel Weisz stars as a woman who leaves her husband and a socially prosperous life to pursue a love affair with a pilot. Hester Collyer (Weisz) is married to a judge, William (Simon Russell Beale), and enjoys all the material comfort and social privilege that goes with such a role in 1950s England. However, when she meets Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a dashing young RAF pilot, Hester's world is turned upside down. She falls in love with Freddie and leaves her husband and her comfortable, if unexciting, life behind for him. Will Freddie prove himself worthy of such devotion? In 'Fish Tank' (2009) 15-year-old Mia Williams (Katie Jarvis) lives with her single mother Joanne (Kierston Wareing) and younger sister Tyler (Rebecca Griffiths) in a run-down, East London council estate. Suspended from school, she fills her days searching for the next alcohol fix and hanging out in a derelict flat near her home. When her mother brings her new boyfriend Conor (Michael Fassbender) home to meet the girls, Mia soon finds herself attracted to him. Unfortunately for all concerned, the feeling seems mutual... In 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' (2011) Tilda Swinton stars as Eva Khatchadourian, the afflicted and angst-ridden mother who fails to bond with her son Kevin (played at the various stages of his childhood by Rock Duer, Jasper Newell and Ezra Miller) from his birth onwards. Now estranged from her former husband Franklin (John C. Reilly), Eva struggles to deal with her grief, isolation and feelings of responsibility after Kevin's sociopathic behaviour reaches new heights with a high school killing spree.

One week before the celebration, however, a letter arrives for her husband, Geoff (Tom Courtenay), containing news that reawakens troubling and long-hidden memories. DEEP BLUE SEA - Hester Collyer (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), with whom she has fallen passionately in love. Set in post-war Britain, this adaptation of Terence Rattigan s classic play, The Deep Blue Sea is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness but is at heart a deeply moving love story. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what - or whom - should Hester choose? FISH TANK - is the story of 15-year old Mia (Katie Jarvis), whose life is turned on its head when her mother (Kierston Wareing) brings home a new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender). Set in the decaying landscape and council estates of Essex, director Andrea Arnold reinforces her reputation as a British auteur and casts the same unflinching, unprejudiced gaze and touches on the themes of her Oscar-winning short WASP to create an original and unsettling tale for our age. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN - Based on the million-selling Orange Prize winning novel by Lionel Shriver and directed by acclaimed film-maker Lynne Ramsay, We Need to Talk About Kevin is an emotional thriller starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller. Eva (Tilda Swinton) puts her ambitions and career aside to give birth to Kevin. The relationship between mother and son is difficult from the very first years. When Kevin is 15, he does something irrational and unforgivable in the eyes of the community. Eva grapples with her own feelings of grief and responsibility. Did she ever love her son? And how much of what Kevin did was her fault?
