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.
I'm not sure weather I likes it or if it was just a downer.
It Starrs out this awkward movie about to inexperience kids getting married and trying to get it on at their honeymoon. Than just became this grim moment of how sometimes it don't work out.
It's a long process too. I hate when movies draw it out but it does help In the sadness.
Movie reminds me of Brooklyn but more boring. I don't get any film Saoirse Ronan stars in (Except for Lady Bird). Actually that's not true at all, but all of her movies are far too artsy for me sometimes to the point where I don't understand the critical acclaim of some of these things.
