Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centres on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Both virgins and very much in love, we follow the pair through their idyllic courtship. The film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy in a time where sex was rarely discussed. What ensues leads to a disastrous and fateful wedding night that will forever change their lives. Starring Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Mary Queen of Scots), Billy Howle (Mother, Father, Son), Emily Watson and Samuel West.
