On Chesil Beach

Troubling.

(Edit) 06/06/2019

This narrative was set in the early sixties. I can see why the suffocating 'secrecy' around sex of that time had such a profound affect on this young innocent couple. The film showed us how they were trapped and without the emotional maturity to cope with the disaster that was unfolding.

No wonder there was a reaction against this through the social change with the sexual revolution just round the corner, and thank goodness for it! But sadly it happened too late for Florence and Edward.

I struggled with the film version, it didn't convey the intensity of the emotions, in fact it diluted them. Some of the filming was meaningless and the music intrusive. Disappointing.
