The director of 2013’s The Lunchbox returns with this adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize winning novel of the same name.
Jim Broadbent plays Tony, an aging divorcee who receives a letter from a lawyer stating that an ex-girlfriend’s mother has left him a diary in her will.
While waiting to get the diary Tony recounts his past to his ex-wife; forced to relive an ill-fated love triangle from his youth Tony begins to question his influence on the events and people involved.
Broadbent is characteristically superb as Tony and the all-star cast includes Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter and Emily Mortimer.
