Great script, great acting
iancreid16 November 2019
A great three hander dealing with relationships in a real way without being banal. Great use of dialogue and poetry. A mature movie that s satisfying without being trite.

Very moving
FKeech30 September 2019
Thank you William Nicholson for saving my Dinard Film Festival 2019. After viewing several so un-innovative "real stories" (Red Joan, Fisherman's Friends) and "social realism" films (The Last Tree, VS - even though VS's world of rap battles was fascinating), I was getting really disappointed in British cinema. Hope Gap made up for all that. It is beautifully acted (Annette Bening is extraordinary), deep and subtle, and does carry you away.

Good film - portrait of a marriage
Trystan138 September 2019
Very enjoyable drama about an couple whose marriage is strained and break up and the effects on each and their grown son. Some humour but a serious film. Performances are first class and as usual Annette Bening is outstanding. John O'Connor (Gods Own Country) also is a stand out

Deep emotional conversation matched with superb acting.

A very difficult story told with strong emotional dialog. Initially the story seems everyday, but as tragedy unfolds the conversation becomes more in depth sharing the impact and viewpoints from the main characters. Acting was superb especially from Josh O'connor.

Warning: Spoilers
I love annette benning. not here , though. a long time marriage breaks up. bill nighy is very good. wife/mother plays guilt card as last effort to get husband back. son exists in middle. not very well. it's impossible to feel compassion for the wife.
