Ian McEwan’s adaptation of his novel, On Chesil Beach, 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).

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.The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson, and Samuel West.
