Lionsgate Films UK has released an Exclusive UK Quad Poster for director Dominic Cooke‘s moving drama, ON CHESIL BEACH, out in cinemas across the UK on 18 May, 2018.
Adapted for the screen by Ian McEwan, from his own best-selling, Booker Prize-nominated novel of the same name, ON CHESIL BEACH stars Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle, alongside Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson and Samuel West.
It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. 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.
ON CHESIL BEACH is out in cinemas across the UK on 18 May, 2018.
