The Brooklyn Oscar nominee and the Dunkirk actor, respectively, play a newlywed couple who remained virgins until their wedding night. Their honeymoon retreat along the English seaside in 1962 becomes a challenge as they find themselves ill-equipped to consummate their marriage.
Former Royal Court Theatre head Dominic Cooke directed the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel from the author’s script. Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley produced, with Joe Oppenheimer, Thorsten Schumacher, Zygi Kamasa, Beth Pattinson, Chiara Gelardin, Norman Merry, Peter Hampden and Ian McEwan serving as executive producers.
On Chesil Beach made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Bleecker Street, which also picked up the drama Disobedience out of Toronto, will wait until 2018 to release On Chesil Beach.
