The Deep Blue Sea

Ok, we’re here to continue with something that we’ve started last week. We’re still wondering which movies will hopefully be ready for this year Cannes, and we know you’re interested to find out that too!

So, today, it’s The Deep Blue Sea turn, project that comes from director Terence Davies and stars lovely Rachel Weisz. Check out the rest of this report to find out more details about it.

The Deep Blue Sea is based on a play of the same name by Terence Rattigan, and the story is set in the ’50s in Merseyside and London. It’s a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness, but is at heart a deeply moving love story.

Hester Collyer leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer. To the shock of those around her, she walks on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page, with whom she has fallen passionately in love. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what – or whom – should Hester choose?

Rachel Weisz stars as that dazzling socialite Hester Collyer, while Tom Hiddleston stars as Freddie Page, a dashing ex-RAF pilot.

Of course, they are in love, and as you see from the synopsis part above, the only problem is that she’s married to a high court judge, portrayed by Simon Russell Beale. So, if you’re interested in seeing the rigid, moralistic society set in post-war Britain, The Deep Blue Sea is the perfect movie for you.

Good enough for the Cannes? Definitely yes.

Will it be ready? Let’s hope so!
