PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE
Annette Bening and Bill Nighy take lead roles in this crisp portrait of a long-standing marriage that disintegrates before our very eyes.
Grace and Edward live in a small seaside town under the cliffs called Hope Gap. When their son Jamie comes to visit, Edward tells him he has met someone else and plans to leave Grace (after 29 years) that same day. Deriving from William Nicholson’s perception of his own parents’ separation, the narrative tracks the unravelling of three lives. There are no outright villains here, just people who have stuck through a series of poor choices. They pass through stages of shock, disbelief and anger, depression – with a steely performance from an unforgiving Bening – to a resolution of sorts.
