Set in 1962, Florence and Edward are two young university graduates who fall in love and marry naïve to the complexities and pressures concerning sexual intimacy. Both coming from somewhat different social backgrounds, but equally troubling families, the film explores how this affects their understanding of the world and each other. Spanning the highs and lows of their union, the story follows the relationship’s idyllic beginnings to the fears and misunderstandings that arrive on their wedding night in a hotel on Dorset’s Chesil Beach. The film acts as a good introduction to Ian McEwan’s bestselling novel and some of the storytelling devices he uses to explore personal memory.
