Ritesh Batra (director of 2013’s acclaimed The Lunchbox) cast Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Emily Mortimer and Michelle Dockery in this much-anticipated adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Booker Prize winning novel.
Tony, divorced and retired, leads a reclusive and relatively quiet life. One day, he learns that the mother of his university girlfriend, Veronica, left in her will a diary kept by his best friend, who dated Veronica after she and Tony parted ways.
Tony’s quest to recover the diary, now in Veronica’s possession, forces him to revisit his flawed recollections of his friends and of his younger self. Set in present day, with flashbacks to the past, the film is a well-crafted, intelligent and suspenseful rumination on ageing, memory and regret.
Also screening for Midweek Treat.
