It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes. Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. However, the hotel is old fashioned and stifling, and underlying tensions between the young couple surface and cast unexpected shadows over their long anticipated wedding night. From the precise depiction of two young lovers, to the touching story of how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the rest of their lives, On Chesil Beach is a tender story which shows how the entire course of a life can be changed, by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
"It takes a while watching On Chesil Beach for it to dawn on you, with horror, that it's a mystery of sorts. The crime scene is the marriage bed" - Vulture.com
