Lionsgate has released a brand new launch poster for the upcoming movie, ON CHESIL BEACH, which you can see above.
The film stars a great cast with Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Emily Watson and Anne-Marie Duff. The film is being brought to the big screen by Dominic Cooke, who is bringing to life Ian McEwan’s screenplay.
It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. We first encounter Florence and Edward, a young couple in their early twenties, on their wedding day. Now on their honeymoon, they are dining in their room at a stuffy, sedate hotel near Chesil Beach in Dorset.
Their conversation becomes more tense and awkward, as the prospect of consummating their marriage approaches. Finally, an argument breaks out between them. Florence storms from the room and out of the hotel, Edward pursues her, and their row continues on Chesil Beach.
From a series of flashbacks, we learn about the differences between them – their attitudes, temperaments and their drastically different backgrounds.
Out on the beach on their fateful wedding day, one of them makes a major decision that will utterly change both of their lives forever.
ON CHESIL BEACH is a powerful, insightful drama about two people, both defined by their upbringing, bound by the social mores of another era.
ON CHESIL BEACH will be arriving in cinemas soon.
