Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, On Chesil Beach is set in the summer of 1962, when England is still a year away from the huge social changes of Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties.

Following a young couple from drastically different backgrounds through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.
