Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK have announced that the acclaimed ‘On Chesil Beach‘ will be released on Digital Download on 10 September and on Blu-ray and DVD on 17 September 2018.
Directed by Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke, and adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel of the same name, the film stars Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle, alongside a stellar British supporting cast including Emily Watson and Anne-Marie Duff.
Summer, 1962: England is still a year away from the social and sexual revolution that characterised the Swinging Sixties; a revolution that determined the future of modern Britain. Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) are newlyweds honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach, Dorset. However, their idyllic romance is tempered by an old fashioned hotel, societal pressures and underlying tensions between the young couple. As they face a long anticipated wedding night, repressed fears boil over and cast an unexpected shadow over an evening that will define the lovers’ marriage.
