In July 1962, Edward Mayhew (Billy Howle), a graduate student of history, and Florence Ponting (Saoirse Ronan), a violinist of a string quartet, have just been married and are spending their honeymoon in a small hotel on the Dorset seashore, at Chesil Beach. The two are very much in love despite being from drastically different backgrounds. During the course of an evening, both reflect upon their upbringing and the prospect of their futures. Edward is sexually motivated and, though intelligent, has a taste for rash behavior. Florence is bound by the social code of another era and, perhaps having been sexually abused by her father, is terrified of sexual intimacy. Florence tries to mentally prepare herself for the inevitable consummation, but the thought of it continues to repulse her.

I was totally unprepared for the content of this movie. I am a fan of the 1960's era and how it affected my life. After seeing the movie I realized how much more it was able to show me than the music, dance and movie. The script is a true work of art. It is a true portrayal of a man and his feelings for a woman. I am not surprised at all that this movie has not been promoted. It is the best movie of all time. I recommend it to everyone.

I loved the movie. I am in love with him. I don't want to give the whole story away but just know that he is going to be great. And I think that everybody should see this movie. It is amazing. I wish they would make another movie about this man.

I saw this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was an excellent movie. It was beautiful, it was inspirational, and it was a beautiful piece of art. The characters are real and likable. The story is about love and life and it is a love story. You really feel for all the characters. This is not a movie that is meant to be taken seriously, but it is a very funny, beautiful movie with a great message. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes romance and life. This is a movie that you will want to watch again and again. It is the perfect movie to watch with the kids. It will show them that there is much more to life than just money. I recommend this movie to anyone who has the desire to live life to the fullest.

I can't believe how much I liked this film. This is my first movie I have ever seen, and I had heard nothing but bad things about it. But I am glad I saw it and am now a fan of The Coen Brothers. The first time I saw this film was in a theater with a friend of mine. I thought it was very funny, but when I saw it again a couple of weeks ago, I was still laughing at the jokes. I have never laughed that much at a movie before, and I have never laughed at a movie that hard. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys comedy. I would also like to say that the story was very original and it is a very original idea. This movie is worth seeing.

This movie is a beautiful expression of love and respect for life. It shows what is possible when love and respect for life and for each other are realized. It is a great message for young people and for all people. We must strive for love, respect, and understanding and let it guide us in our lives. It is not just about marriage, but about all of us, and how we can help each other to become the best we can be. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves life and who wants to be a better person. It is truly a life-affirming film. I have seen many people walk away from this movie feeling that they have been changed and that they are living a new life. I will never forget the feeling of that. Thank you, Jamie, for making this film.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is very well written. You just can't believe it is a movie. I really liked the characters and the characters themselves. I thought that they were so real, they made me feel like I was with them. The acting was good. I was impressed with the two lead actors. They really did a good job. The other actors were good as well. I just thought the writing was so great. I really liked the way they wrote this movie. I think that you have to see this movie to believe it. It really is a great movie. If you don't like it, then that is your problem. If you like it, then I really recommend you see this movie.

In this day and age, one of the few gems of British cinema is the work of British directors that are more than just a glorified tour de force. Many of them, such as John Huston and John Gielgud, have had a short-lived but phenomenal career, with a few films, such as 'The Shawshank Redemption', being truly legendary. These are directors who don't make a lot of money, but who have a genuine passion for their craft. Such is the case with David Hare. He was the director of 'The Young Ones' and 'Shakespeare in Love', two films that were so popular that they spawned the screenplays of several Hollywood films. Hare is an American, but he is very much British and the tone of his films is distinctly British. 'Chesil Beach' is a perfect example. The film is very much a coming-of-age story, and it is very much the story of a young boy's love for the sea. The film is told from the boy's perspective, which is, I must admit, an interesting way of telling a story. But the problem with this is that it is difficult to relate to the film as a young boy. I was not a young boy, and so I was not really affected by the film. I was more affected by the fact that I was watching a film about a boy who loved the sea. The film is not all good though. The film is made by the same director who made the excellent 'The Shawshank Redemption', and it's easy to see why the film is praised so highly. 'Chesil Beach' is an excellent film, but it is not the best British film of all time. 'The Young Ones' is, and 'Shakespeare in Love' is. 'Shakespeare in Love' is a film I think is more deserving of its reputation, and it is because it is so much better. 'Chesil Beach' is a film that I would recommend to people, but I don't think it is something that should be seen by people under the age of 10. It is very much a coming-of-age story, and there is not much that is to be enjoyed by a young child. It is a film that should be enjoyed by adults though, as it is a brilliant story of a boy's love for the sea. This is something that most films are not good at. 'Chesil Beach' is an excellent film that will stand the test of time. It is a film that is very British in its style, but it is also an excellent film that has enough good things about it to recommend it to anyone who loves a good film. 'Chesil Beach' is a film that I highly recommend, but I don't think it should be seen by children under the age of ten.

I don't know why I didn't see this movie sooner, it is such a romantic and heart touching movie. The film is so cute and the acting is so amazing. I have watched this movie with my son, who is 11, and he was crying all the time. We have been together for 14 years, and he loves this movie so much. I think it is a must see movie for everyone, and I hope that this movie will be shown to as many people as possible.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the producers, directors and everyone else involved with this wonderful film. From the director to the cast to the crew and to everyone involved with this film, I have to say I am a huge fan of this film. I just got back from the cinema and I can't wait to see it again. I am so happy that it was a movie that was able to connect with me in a way that others films didn't. I am not a big fan of romantic comedies, but this movie made me feel like I was watching a movie that I would love to watch again and again. It was great. The actors were amazing and so was the script. It was well done and I can't wait to see it again! I hope that this film is able to touch as many people as it has touched me!

I was so thrilled when I saw this film! It is such a beautiful story of love, family, and the power of love. It is a movie that is uplifting, yet it is also very funny. I have never seen a film like this before. The performances are amazing, especially by the two main characters. This is a movie that anyone can relate to and can relate to the love story. It is a story that is not too complex and seems to be simple but it is not. It is a story about family, friends, and how love can change everything.

I love this movie. I was completely taken by the energy and intensity of it. I had my hands in the air, my eyes closed, and my heart pounding in anticipation. What a story of hope and perseverance. It is beautiful, raw, and so real. I am not a young woman, but I know the meaning of true love, and I will never forget this movie. I also know the meaning of a man's love. I also know the meaning of faith and hope. I am so grateful for this movie, and it's message. Please do yourself a favor, watch this movie. It's wonderful.

I think this movie is underrated. I think the critics are missing the point. I am a huge fan of The Beach Boys and their music. I have been waiting for a long time to see this movie. The movie is very well done, especially considering the time it was made. The soundtrack is awesome and the story is fantastic. The acting is good and the characters are well developed. I really liked the relationship between the boy and the girl. I think the movie is a must see. The music is amazing and the story is amazing. I recommend this movie to everyone. It's a must see for all music fans. The music and the story will make you feel good. I think the movie is underrated.

I thought this movie was so good, I couldn't stop laughing, and it was so nice to see a movie that wasn't all about sex and drugs, it was also funny, and it was a nice film. I didn't know what to expect from this movie, but it was great. The acting was great, especially from Willem Dafoe, and I liked the way the story went, and it was just a good film.

This is one of the best films I've ever seen. It's such a shame that it was not a hit. It was one of the first movies I ever saw, and it was by far one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's a film that captures the spirit of the 60's and 70's, and it's a shame it wasn't a hit. I think that if it had been, it would have been the most underrated film ever. It's just a shame that it wasn't a hit. This movie has a great message, and it shows the reality of life in America. It shows how hard it is to get ahead in life, and how hard it is to get ahead in a relationship. The music is incredible, and the acting is amazing. The story is very moving, and the message is very powerful. It's a great film that will make you want to see it again and again. I think that it's a great movie, and I strongly recommend that you see it.

I didn't think this film was going to be great but it turned out to be one of the best films I've ever seen. The cast was amazing and I found it difficult to choose what film to see. The music was very touching and perfect for the movie. The scenery was beautiful and I think the actors did a great job in portraying the characters. The story line was a little too slow but it was still great. I'm going to see it again. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to have a good time.

I first saw this film on television when I was a teenager. I didn't know what I was watching, but I was thoroughly entertained. Now that I'm a few years older, I see the film again and appreciate it even more. The music is perfect. It gives the film an old-fashioned feel. The actors are all excellent. And the music is so perfect that it's hard to think of any movie music that is better. I was very surprised that the film was made in the early 80s, but it's still very relevant and very interesting. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie that is both emotionally and visually engaging.

I didn't know how this film was going to turn out, but I thought it would be worth seeing. I was right. It is definitely a "must see" film, and I hope it continues to do well. I just hope to get the chance to see it again.

A touching film about a young boy's love for a girl who has moved on with her life. The acting is superb. The music is wonderful and full of feeling. A young boy's love is so real and yet so different to our own. A great film.

If you are a fan of this show, then you will like this movie. It is more or less an extended episode of the show. It is a wonderful movie to see, and it is very, very good. It is very well written, and it is great to see that the writers and producers were able to maintain the "feel" of the show. The movie does not have the "feel" of the show. It is more of a "feel" of the day to day life of the characters. It is like watching the show, but it is just a little different. I really loved the movie, but I do wish that they would have made a series of episodes. I think they could have made the movie so much better. I would recommend this movie to anyone, but I would also recommend this show to anyone, and this show to anyone.

This is the film I have been waiting for. I have been waiting for years for this film to come out and I have been in love with this film since I was a little girl. I have been told it is a film for adults, but I have never been in love with a film that has been made for adults. I have been in love with this film since I was in kindergarten, and I have been telling everyone I know about it. This film is for the ages. It is a perfect blend of love, romance, and drama. It is perfect for anyone. I could not be more satisfied with this film. I could not have wished for a better film to watch. I hope everyone enjoys this film. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

This is one of my favorite films. It is so different from the other music/drama films. It is a pure love story, without any sensationalism. It has a very strong message, without using any profanity. It is the best film I have seen in a very long time. I am sure that most of the people who saw it did not like it because it did not have any sort of commercial message. This film is about the love of two people. It has the power to touch your heart and touch your soul. It is very powerful, and I think that the director and the writer did a very good job in bringing this movie to life. I do not recommend this film to anyone who does not like music/drama films. This film is very unique. The story of a young boy and a girl, who grew up in a very poor neighborhood, and came to the city to find a better life. They eventually found a relationship, but it is not romantic. They are very different, but they become close and learn to love each other. It is a very powerful film. I recommend this film to anyone who has an open mind. I have seen this film a number of times, and I still love it. This is one of the best films that I have seen in a very long time.
