On Chesil Beach (2017)

On Chesil Beach is a powerful, insightful drama about two people, both defined by their upbringing, bound by the social mores of another era.

We first encounter Florence (Saoirse Ronan) and Edward (Billy Howle), a young couple in their early twenties, on their wedding day in 1962.

On their honeymoon in Dorset, the young couple find their romance colliding with issues of sexual freedom and societal pressure.  They spend their honeymoon preoccupied and terrified by the upcoming consummation of their marriage.

This film is based on the best-selling novel with the same name by Ian McEwan.
