In 1962 England, two young people from drastically different backgrounds - well-to-do Florence (Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan) and working-class Edward (Billy Howle) - meet and begin an idyllic courtship. Though their love is true, the societal pressures and sexual mores of the time cause strain between the young couple, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, On Chesil Beach is being hailed by critics as a "lyrical and rapturous film" (Variety). - ( Original Title - On Chesil Beach )
