      So.

      Never consciously set out to be a Saoirse Ronan fanboy, but had her marked out as a personal special talent ever since the The Lovely Bones in 2009. She's only 24, and already has a hugely impressive CV under her belt. And hot on the heels of her Oscar-nominated performance in Ladybird comes On Chesil Beach, an altogether different movie, yet in many ways the same movie. This time she's Florence Ponting, middle-middle-class classical-music-loving mildly-rebellious newlywed, newly-bethrothed to lower-middle-class jazz-loving mildly-rebellious Edward Mayhew, ably-played by Billy Howle. It's 1962. They've been married a couple of hours, they're booked into a posh/grotty flock-wallpaper hotel on Chesil Beach in Dorset. Bit by bit, we're filled in on their back stories, lovingly set against a backdrop of flint cottages and pebble beaches, village cricket and ungifted amateur tennis.It's beautifully directed by Dominic Cooke, and ever so easy to fully immerse yourself in. But based on a novella of the same name by Ian McEwan, it has to tell a specific story. So the ending gets somewhat-clumsily, yet still movingly shoe-horned in. Overall, t's a beautiful piece of work that you'll take away with you and sit in the corner and think about what you've seen for quite some time. And Saoirse Ronan? Our Greatest Living 24 Year Old Actress by about a hundred country miles. 8/10
      Going to see this at DOY of Thursday after my night shift. I will be tired but do not want to miss out. Apart from the story which I found haunting and beautiful I grew up on Portland and looked out over Chesil beach every day from my bedroom window. My Father's ashes are also scattered on Chesil Beach. While the story obviously has more going on than the location, it is one of the reasons I am keen to see this.
      The trailer opens to a view of Portland that is dear to me.
      Nearly.

      Ian McEwan admitted to having pebbles from Chesil Beach on his desk as he wrote the story, a group of conservationists were OUTRAGED and the council tried to fine him ... he put them back

      I saw that! Now, while I see the argument "if everyone did that.." But Chesil Beach is 18 miles long!
      Nearly.

      Well .... as I had to get an engineer out yesterday I managed to get to the DOYs for the final screening (just). The engineer took 2 and half hours to do a 30min job (not their fault .... ) so I arrived 30mins late just as the film began.
      Difficult film to review without giving too much away and don't think I can add to yours. I thought the whole cast were brilliant, plus I loved the music and scenery. Chesil Beach looks amazing!
      Couple of scenes stood out for me ... when Anne-Marie Duff HAD to dish up the stew it brought a lump to my throat, brought back a real memory for me. And the scene when Florence's dad threw a wobbly after tennis was quite haunting.
      I wouldn't describe it as an enjoyable film (like Ladybird), but I think it could be a modern classic (in the vein of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof / East of Eden).

      Just about to turn off a film called Gemini. Absolute load of garbage. If it wasn't for the pointless fillers every two minutes then the film would be about 20mins long and still be boring as hell. No story, shoddy acting, bad haircuts and nasal Americans. Awful attempt at a movie.

      Hereditary. Words cannot describe how bad this film is. Avoid at all costs. By far the worst film of the year. It rates s 25 out of 100
      Spielberg is GOD.

      Completely agree with this, several people walked out of the showing i went to as it is sooo dull and boring and i wished i'd done the same
