Synopsis:
It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. Florence (Saoirse Ronan) and Edward (Billy Howie) are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. However, the hotel is old fashioned and stifling, and underlying tensions between the young couple surface and cast unexpected shadows over their long anticipated wedding night. 'On Chesil Beach' is a tender story which shows how the entire course of a life can be changed simply by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.

Disappointing - On Chesil Beach review by EJ

Spoiler Alert
03/11/2018

I was looking forward to this movie, usually my 'cup of tea', but it just wasn't right. I didn't actually enjoy watching Saoirse Ronan and as for the character she played, well the reason she behaved the way she did, becomes clear through watching the film unfold, but the ending didn't make sense to me: She married and had several children; why and how? Well acted by Billy Howle, but some scary 'face ageing' going on there!

Tedious - On Chesil Beach review by JC

Spoiler Alert
07/01/2019

Disappointingly mawkish and slow, disjointed and unconvincing. It's a fairly thin storyline and would need spellbinding acting to make it worth watching. I am sure that they all did their best.

Well acted beautifully filmed and good story - On Chesil Beach review by DL

Spoiler Alert
27/01/2019

I have disagree with the other reviews, we enjoyed this film, the story is well told on how the couple grew up and came to meet each other. Through out the film it is obvious that the girl isn't as loving as her husband to be and there will be problems ahead. remember this is set in an era when there was no sex education and most couples were still virgins before they wed. After the wedding the story follows the male life, up until 2007.
