Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, On Chesil Beach centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962 (three-time Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan, Dunkirk‘s Billy Howle). Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.

The film co-stars Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Academy Award nominee Emily Watson, and Samuel West. It is directed by Dominic Cooke, in his feature film debut, and will be released by Bleecker Street in the US in select theaters on May 18th.


Here is the first trailer and poster.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
