Adapted from Ian McEwan’s bestselling novel, On Chesil Beach centres on the relationship of a seemingly mismatched couple in the summer of 1962. Florence (Ronan) is a talented classical musician from a well-to-do family; Edward (Howle) is the clever young man from altogether humbler origins.
We follow the pair through their idyllic courtship, exploring sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, which leads to their fateful wedding night.
ON CHESIL BEACH is a powerful, insightful drama about two people, both defined by their upbringing, bound by the social mores of another era.
