Look, you wanna live like this? Fine. I don't. I'm going to have this affair.
And a divorce and the child I've failed to give you?
No. No divorce, no deception, no lies. I love you and we're meant to be together but... look, I could have gone behind your back.
Oh, how very kind. I can't believe how cool we are. Open marriage. The time to suggest that, Jack, was before the wedding, not twenty years afterwards.

Never before have I gone to a screening of a film just to see if it was going to be just OK, in fact I nearly didn't go.
How wrong I was, I cannot remember a film that has has such an emotional impact on me.
It's a very powerful intelligent and moving film with stunning performances from Emma Thompson & Fionn Whitehead and if Emma doesn't receive awards for her performance alone then there's something seriously wrong.
If you like intelligent thought provoking films, go and watch this on the big screen, I promise you'll not be disappointed.
