"A completely heartbreaking story brought to exquisite life via immaculate writing, directing and acting" - Washington Post

England, 1962. Two young lovers marry and begin their honeymoon on the Dorset coast. Edward (Billy Howle – Dunkirk) and Florence (Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird) hail from very different backgrounds but, deeply in love, the full complexity of their relationship only becomes clear on their wedding night as they struggle to reconcile their approaches to sex. Confused, uncertain and hopelessly ill-equipped to talk honestly of their fears and desires, they do not yet know that this tragi-comic situation will shape their lives. A beautifully precise and searching film fascinated by the repressive effects of ‘propriety’ – a notion still hard at work in English society in the early ‘60s.

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own Booker Prize-winning novella.
