On Chesil Beach DVD


It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. However, the hotel is old fashioned and stifling, and underlying tensions between the young couple surface and cast unexpected shadows over their long anticipated wedding night. From the precise depiction of two young lovers, to the touching story of how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the... rest of their lives, ON CHESIL BEACH is a tender story which shows how the entire course of a life can be changed, by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.

    Editor Review

    The direction demonstrates a pathos which stirs a 'what if' feeling in the audience. The plot reflects a human behaviour trait which demonstrates that even in intense hurt, much of our initial emotional reactions can be moderated over time, even if we choose not to admit it to ourselves soon enough to avert the anguish it can cause.
    Super acting by Billy Howie and Saoirse Ronan, who make a convincing display of intense awkwardness a pleasure to watch. Joined with a talented supporting cast of Samuel West and Emily Watson, make this simple narrative intensely rich and moving.

    Was emotionally moved and would definitely watch again and get even more from it!
