Watch this world exclusive trailer for The Deep Blue Sea…
Terence Davies adapts Terence Rattigan’s play to the big screen in a moving and tragic tale of love and war. Hester Collyer (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), with whom she has fallen head over heels in love.
Set in post-war Britain, this adaptation of Rattigan’s classic play, The Deep Blue Sea is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness – but is at heart a deeply moving love story. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what - or whom - should Hester choose?
The Deep Blue Sea premieres at the London Film Festival on 27 October and is released nationwide on 25 November.
