The Deep Blue Sea

The Deep Blue Sea

Directed by Terence Davies

Hester Collyer (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), with whom she has fallen passionately in love. Set in post-war Britain, this adaptation of Terence Rattigan's classic play, THE DEEP BLUE SEA is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness - but is at heart a deeply moving love story. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what - or whom - should Hester choose?

Flashbacks reveal the destructive love affair between the wife (Rachel Weisz) of a British judge and a rakish RAF pilot (Tom Hiddleston).

Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Rachel Weisz, Ann Mitchell, Simon Russell Beale

mature philosophical depiction of what love means to at least three individuals coming from different concepts and needs and the impact thereof. Excellent performances, script and direction.

I have always like Rachael. This was a really different movie. To me it spoke of a woman declining into mental illness she was trying to control, did not understand and couldn’t cope with. The illness made her very clingy and demanding and her lover was not able to cope with the drastic change in her. Maybe I’m completely misunderstanding the premise of he movie but that was my take.
