You had to have been there properly to understand - The Sense of an Ending review by LF

Spoiler Alert
02/10/2017

Those who did not live through the 1950s, 60s and 70s are likely to appreciate this fine film less than an older audience. You need to have known what it was like not to have easy and instant communication, not to have the acceptance of sexual freedom, not to have equality, not to have even the language in which to discuss how you felt and thought, let alone the societal permission to do so. You need to have carried the weight of expectations of behaviour and relationships that are unthinkable by today's young, and you need to have had your heart broken, to have lost touch, to have lived a life and then, in your later years, to have tried to work out what it was really all about. Somebody younger, who is interested and aware, could and should enjoy the film, not least for the delicacy with which the story is expressed. Older viewers will not need to have it explained.

An Exquisite Unfolding of a Complex Plot - The Sense of an Ending review by AS

Spoiler Alert
21/11/2017

One of the most genuine and plausible stories of individuals battling to reach out and connect with their fellow beings, while ensnared in a mass of emotional tentacles of restrictive values from 50 years back. We see some of the characters struggle successfully to go beyond these constraints, while others wither or even die.

Brilliant acting and plot development.

Saw it at home, never came to a local cinema! - The Sense of an Ending review by PP

Spoiler Alert

This film was listed locally, but never arrived! Now I've seen it, I'm not altogether surprised. It's very slow, and dull in parts. Beautiful to look at but I wouldn't recommend it.
