On Chesil Beach

saoirse ronan on chesil beach

Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle play doomed newlyweds in On Chesil Beach, adapted by Ian McEwan from his own brief novel. The film is sad but lovely, remarkable for the acting as well as the cinematography, which really distills the characters’ emotional isolation. The entire film hinges on a squeamishly slow and disastrous sex act that’s super uncomfortable to sit through, not because either of them is at fault but because neither was instructed about how marriage actually works. There are hazy hints of trauma in her past; he’s just a dumb boy.
