The Deep Blue Sea

Based on the Terence Rattigan play of the same name, "The Deep Blue Sea" is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness in postwar Britain. At its heart it is also a deeply moving love story. Hester Collyer (Rachel Weisz) is married to a judge (Simon Russell Beale), and enjoys all the material comfort and social privilege that goes with such a role in 1950s England. However, when she meets Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a dashing young RAF pilot, Hester's world is turned upside down. She falls in love with Freddie and leaves her husband and her comfortable, if unexciting, life behind for him. Will Freddie prove himself worthy of such devotion?
