  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Dominic Cooke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson
  • UK release: 19 January 2018

Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.
