No children under 15 may watch this film.
As rated by visitors:
No ratings yet!

A handsome and well-acted rumination on memory, boyhood and ageing.


Director Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) brings us this gripping adaptation of Julian Barnes's Man Booker Prize-winning novel.

The film is anchored by a stirring performance from the always superb Jim Broadbent as Tony, a sour old soul, leading a quiet existence until his first love (Charlotte Rampling) returns, bringing with her long buried and devastating secrets from his past.

A contemplative and compelling tale about on memory, time and the dangers of trying to forget your past.
