The Deep Blue Sea

Part of Terence Davies
Sunday, May 22, 2016, 6:45 p.m.

Dir. Terence Davies. 2011, 98 mins. 35mm. With Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston. In this lush, meticulous, and deeply moving adaptation of a Terence Rattigan play, Rachel Weisz plays Hester Collyer, a woman who abandons her passionless marriage to a wealthy barrister, entering a torrid affair with a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, the consequences of which plunge her life into ruin. Davies’s collaboration with cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister infuses post-war London with a twilight nostalgic reverie, and in a performance that earned the Best Actress award from the New York Film Critics Circle, Weisz brings to the character of Hester an unmatched luminosity, magnetism, and emotional rawness.
