On Chesil Beach


England in 1962 - newly-married Edward (Billy Howle) and Florence (Saoirse Ronan) are young, educated and from vastly different backgrounds. Arriving on the Dorset coast for their honeymoon, they soon discover that their approaches to sex greatly differ, with fumbling tragicomic results. As things come to a head, they are yet to discover that this awkward scene will have profound consequences for the rest of their lives. Based on Ian McEwan's Booker Prize nominated novella, On Chesil Beach announces former Royal Court Theatre head Dominic Cooke as a new director to watch.
