A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson, and Samuel West.

Gala Screening, 14th Dubai International Film Festival.
It was a great pleasure meeting the director in person and talk about his movie after the Gala Screening.
Set in the 60's, two young people are married, and having their honeymoon. They are both virgin. They know each other, and it was completely a planned and arranged marriage. yet, they are so nervous. Their stories are told in flash back that comes often, as their nervous honeymoon progress.
The frames were exceptionally good, especially in the outdoor. Hats-off to the cinematographer. The Chesil beach had a real classic touch.
