Adapted from the play by Terence Rattigan, THE DEEP BLUE SEA stars Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz as Hester Collyer, the troubled wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). Racked with emotional problems, Hester turns her back on her loveless marriage and sets up house with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston). When her lover proves to be shallow and unreliable, Hester finds herself stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, with suicide seeming to be the only option. The play was first adapted to screen in 1955, with Vivien Leigh as the tragic heroine.

Drama based on the Terence Rattigan play, starring Rachel Weisz 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?
