On Chesil Beach

Ian McEwan's adaptation of his novel, directed by Dominic Cooke, is an emotionally charged exploration of love, sex and marriage, featuring superb performances by Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle (Dunkirk).

It is summer 1962, and England has yet to undergo the social changes that ushered in a new morality synonymous with the Swinging Sixies and Beatlemania.

Florence and Edward are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. In thier stifling hotel underlying tensions between the young couple surface, casting unexpected shadows across wedding night.
