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

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!

Confusing. - On Chesil Beach review by JW

Spoiler Alert

I agree with the above review mostly. Was the director and screenwriter just out of college?

Some of the dialogue was so corny, some of the music so inappropriate. Although I love classical

music, even that didn't sound quite right. What's wrong with silence? French and Danish films seem to get it right. Was the girl meant to be at fault re. the wedding night, god the guy was so inept and insensitive

(and I am a bloke!). Overall quite a disaster I think. I'd really like to read a review from someone who liked

it, maybe I've got it all wrong.
