Hester Collyer is the wife of an upper-class judge and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page, a young, troubled former royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated.
For playwright Terence Rattigan’s centenary—ten years ago today!—the great British filmmaker Terence Davies was invited to adapt the former’s seminal 1952 play. Starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston, The Deep Blue Sea is an awe-inspiring period piece of love and passion set in post-WW2 London.
