On Chesil Beach Movie Ratings and Review
Metacritic’s Ratings and Review
It is a tender and valuable film, well-acted, with a shrewd eye for how naïve you can be in your early 20s, how impatient, how pompous, how tragicomically un-self-aware.

The lead actors are both marvelous… Yet the film’s most impressive performance might come from Director Dominic Cooke, who has delivered as assured, wistful debut.

It’s a lyrical and rapturous film – a repressed passion play, funny, delicate and heartbreaking.
