Rated R · 98 minutes · 2012

Drama, Romance
Writer-director Terence Davies has made a good but sad film based on the play by Terence Rattigan. Rachel Weisz lets it all out as Hester, the wife of a prominent British judge (Simon Russell Beale) who is older. She falls for Freddie (Tom Hiddleston), a former Air Force pilot. The film opens on a very somber note, and then tells the back story. It’s an uncompromising look at bad decisions, and how selfish behavior can ruin lives. While it’s no party to watch, it’s undoubtedly a fine film, with Weisz and Hiddleston creating what will surely be one of the year’s most-memorable screen couples. Beale is also very good as the jilted man who is trying to handle a humiliating situation with grace.
