On Chesil Beach starring Saoirse Ronan & Billy Howle: The First Trailer #book2movies

The poster for On Chesil Beach features an unexpected font, at once delicate, romantic and optimistic, belying the depth & poignancy of Ian McEwan’s story. Although I suppose the look on Edward’s face (Billy Howle) says it all.

Set in 1962, a different world when there were still people who remained virgins until their wedding nights. People like Florence and Edward, both nervous but Florence especially so, with issues that go beyond first time jitters and neither one knowing exactly what to do.

Watch this first trailer and let me know what you think.


  1. McEwan is a brilliant writer. Obviously this ins't a feel good movie, but I don't know that I can resist Saoirse Ronan. She looks wonderful. Did you see her in Brooklyn? I love that

    1. You're right, he is. And this book absolutely devastated me with the couple's inability to connect. I think Saoirse is absolutely perfect for the part of Florence! And yes, I did see Brooklyn. I adored it!
      Here's some of what I gushed about it!

  2. I liked the squares at the end showing other characters -- lots of good actors in this one!


I love that you're leaving a comment! Thanks.
