Trivia

Terence Davies wanted Rachel Weisz for the part of Hester Collyer after he noticed her and her "incredible talent" in Amy Foster (1997). He called his agent to meet Weisz, who he hadn't heard of before seeing her in that film, saying "Have you ever heard of this girl Rachel Weisz?". His agent joked him by answering "She's an Oscar winner!". Weisz laughs at this by saying "I don't think Terence (Davies) knows very well anyone who's not in a black and white film". See more »

The movie is just oh so serious but I didn't feel any emotions for any of the characters!

'THE DEEP BLUE SEA': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Rachel Weisz has received much critical praise and award recognition (including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress) for her starring turn in this melodramatic romance based on the 1950's play, of the same name, by Terence Rattigan. In the film she plays the wife of a much older judge who begins an affair with a much younger former Royal Air Force pilot. It co-stars Tom Hiddleston (best known as Loki of 'AVENGERS' and 'THOR' fame) and Simon Russell Beale. It was directed and written for the screen by Terence Davies. Weisz's performance might be pretty good but the movie as a whole is just way too melodramatic and boring!

Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of High Court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale) in 1950 London. Hester is bored with her life married to William, who is almost ten years older than her. Then she meets former RAF pilot Freddie Page, who's haunted by memories of his service in World War II. Hester and Freddie are drawn to each other and Hester is excited by the passion she feels for the much younger man (over a decade younger). Her new romantic adventure causes a lot of trouble for everyone involved though and results in a suicide attempt.

The movie is just oh so serious but I didn't feel any emotions for any of the characters. It's extremely tragic and dry and unbearable at times. Movies like this are just impossible for me to get into. I like emotional drama and will cry at a good tearjerker but I have to be given a good reason to care about the characters. Weisz might be really good in the film (as are the other actors) but I had a hard time acknowledging it as I could care less about her character. I'm sure there's an audience that will like and appreciate this film (like a lot of the critics) but it's not me.
