An absorbing account of a famous period in Danish history.

The Deep Blue Sea Movie Poster

Set in the 1950s this tells the story of Hester Collyer, the younger wife of a High Court judge who embarks on an affair with Freddie Page, a handsome young former RAF pilot.

The affair is passionate, but thrill-seeking Freddie can never give her the love and stability that her husband gave. Yet to return to a life without passion would be unbearable.

Her dilemma, and the heart of the film, is being caught between the Devil and the deep blue sea.

Directed by Terence Davies with excellent performances by Rachel Weisz, Simon Russell Beale and Tom Hiddleston. An adaptation of Terence Rattigan's 1952 play and the 1955 film starring Kenneth More and Vivien Leigh.

Running time 98 minutes.

My Week With Marilyn - shown Thursday, 5 July 2012

In the summer of 1956, 23-year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott).


Nearly 40 years on, his diary account, The Prince, the Showgirl and Me, was published, but one week was missing, and this was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn.

 

This is the story of that week.  When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life: an idyllic week in which he escorted a Marilyn desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.


The film features an outstanding cast includes Judi Dench as Dame Sybil Thorndike and Derek Jacobi as Sir Owen Morshead.
