"Bening, a magnificent actress in peak form, never runs from the challenge of finding the wounded heart of a woman who can’t or won’t let go" – Rolling Stone
"[Josh O’Connor] is fast becoming the face of endearing rural ruggedness in British cinema" – Little White Lies
Bill Nighy and Annette Bening are on superb form in this touching portrayal of a marriage in crisis from Oscar-nominated screenwriter William Nicholson (Shadowlands, Gladiator).
Living an idyllic life in a British seaside town, Grace’s world comes crashing down when her husband of 29 years tells her he’s leaving.
As Grace reels from the news it coincides with a visit from their son (Josh O’Connor, God’s Own Country, The Crown) and the two must lean on each other for support. It’s a richly rewarding drama, and an acerbic Bening is a joy to watch.
