Trivia

Terence Davies wanted Rachel Weisz for the part of Hester Collyer after he noticed her "incredible talent" in Swept from the Sea (1997), even though he hadn't heard of her before seeing that film. He called his agent and asked, "Have you ever heard of this girl Rachel Weisz?" His agent laughed and said, "She's an Oscar winner!" Weisz was amused by this and said, "I don't think Terence [Davies] knows very well anyone who's not in a black and white film." See more »

Quotes

Hester Collyer: Lust isn't the whole of life, but Freddie is, you see, for me. The whole of life. And death. So, put a label on that, if you can.

Terence Rattigan's Time Has Come
23 March 2012 | by (Long Island, USA) – See all my reviews

Brilliant, is what I say. Terence Rattigan's 1950 play was filmed once before (and while I have not seen it, I can't think it would be more effective than the new version) but the current film puts the lie to our weird nostalgia for the "Keep Calm and Carry On" era. This movie is cool, efficient and heartbreaking. And it is directed with an eye on Rattigan's increasing stature. When one character goes on a John Osbourne style rant, we are not meant to fall for this particular Angry Young Man. Of course, Rattigan wrote it just before the Angry Young Man began storming the British stage. It shows he was gearing up for the onslaught. Rattigan is often mistaken for a conventional dramatist, but his explosions are deeper than Osbourne's, perhaps because he himself (Rattigan) doesn't cultivate anger. He knew how and when to use it.
