Saoirse is back on the press junket for her new movie ‘On Chesil Beach’, out this May 18 (US and UK). We have new interviews with her when she was in London, as posted below. We’ll be updating this post for more in the future. Enjoy!
Vanity Fair recently had a feature on ‘On Chesil Beach’ along with a new portrait of Saoirse and Billy Howle. You can view it right in our gallery.
With On Chesil Beach, which will be in theaters next month, Saoirse Ronan sustains an unbroken streak of acting excellence that has encompassed The Grand Budapest Hotel, Brooklyn, and Lady Bird. The film is set in the narrowest sliver of historical time, the immediately pre-youthquake Britain of 1962, when, as Ian McEwan writes in the novella upon which the movie is based, “to be young was a social encumbrance . . . a faintly embarrassing condition for which marriage was the beginning of a cure.”
But the picture, directed by Dominic Cooke and co-starring Billy Howle, is tender toward its virginal newlywed protagonists rather than mocking and mean. “Satire creates distance. I wanted the reader, and now the viewer, to get right up close to them,” says McEwan, who handled the screenplay adaptation himself.
In bearing and appearance—”certainly beautiful, but in a sculpted, strong-boned way,” as the book has it—Ronan is uncannily right for the role of Florence Ponting, the violinist who takes the hand (but not willingly much else) of her groom, Edward Mayhew. “The physicality of Florence is so important, because there is so much that isn’t said,” Ronan explains. “And Ian writes with such love and understanding. I don’t think there are many films that have tackled this subject this way. Usually, it’s either a caricature, like American Pie, or overly sentimental.”
New promotional stills of Saoirse and Billy Howle in “On Chesil Beach” have been released! We have uploaded them to our photo gallery. The film premiered during the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and is currently set for a wider release in countries like Ireland, England and the United States on May 18, 2018.
