The Deep Blue Sea

The Deep Blue Sea

Directed by Terence Davies

In The Deep Blue Sea, Master chronicler of post-War England, Terence Davies directs Rachel Weisz as a woman whose overpowering love threatens her well-being and alienates the men in her life. In a deeply vulnerable performance, Rachel Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of an upper-class judge (Simon Russell Beale) and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated. The film is an adaptation of British playwright Terence Rattigan’s 1952 play, featuring one of the greatest roles for an actress in modern theatre.

The story was compelling and cinematography very well done, with symbolism strewn throughout. I found the description of the film misleading - the main character is exploring love and what it means in her life, but she is clearly in an emotionally abusive relationship for which she gets blamed.

Terrible film. The talents of Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston were totally wasted. Extremely disappointing and the music was awfully depressing.

Absolutely beautiful. Those with low reviews do not understand the nuances of life, passion, and letting go.
