Master chronicler of post-War England, Terence Davies directs Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz (The Whistleblower, The Bourne Legacy) as a woman whose overpowering love threatens her well-being and alienates the men in her life. In a deeply vulnerable performance, Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of an upper-class judge (Simon Russell Beale, My Week with Marilyn) and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston, Midnight in Paris, War Horse), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated. The film is an adaptation of British playwright Terence Rattigan’s 1952 play, featuring one of the greatest roles for an actress in modern theatre.
