Product description

Product Description

Hester Collyer (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), with whom she has fallen passionately in love. Set in post-war Britain this adaptation of Terence Rattigan s classic play, The Deep Blue Sea is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness but is at heart a deeply moving love story. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what - or whom - should Hester choose? From acclaimed director Terence Davis

We’re on tricky ground here, a dizzying place where we might not keep our balance. How do we live passionately without being destroyed by the passion? An ancient question shown here in a modern context, if postwar Britain in 1950 is still considered modern.

Hester Collyer has never been deeply loved, if depth means intensely, passionately, erotically. She has never expressed herself fully as a woman, never been with a man who appreciates her need for such expression. Were all the best men, those who were daring, destroyed in the war? Where are the brave men now, if they still exist?

Hester is lonely, unfulfilled. She grew up cloistered and protected, a clergyman’s daughter. A good girl, she was loyal and obedient, her narrow path set for her, a path on which there seemed no possibility of crisis. She was beautiful and intelligent. Her future would be secure. She would not stay unmarried. What man would not have her as his English rose?

The man who took and married her was Sir William Collyer. Unlike her, he is not so young. He is maybe 45, she just 27, at most. The gap in age for him is unimportant. She’ll always be fresh and young for him. He’s successful, formerly a barrister, now a judge. He comes from the gentry, from a respected family with good name. Hester, the clergyman’s daughter, is humble by comparison.

Though we’re not certain why she married him, we can imagine it. He was probably kind to her, doting on her. He was proud and happy to have her, to have caught her. She added to his sense of self, his success. Her father may have been happy too, his daughter marrying into the respectable establishment, the wife of a judge, no less. Conventionally the picture looked fine.

This is a beautiful, moving film. Terence Davies is one of the few really great directors this country seems to possess and it's crazy how hard he has struggled for financing for his work. When he made this film in 2011 he'd been 'unemployed', as he put it in an interview, for about a decade if you discount his documentary about his native Liverpool.

As with most of his films, the story isn't told via a linear narrative but instead unfolds via a thread of interconnected memories and is told entirely from the point of view of Hester, the main female character. She is a woman of around 40, married to an older man of wealth, status and culture, who suddenly discovers what it is to fall passionately in love. She leaves her husband only to find that her new relationship has its own limitations.

Her new partner, a former Battle of Britain pilot, is a man of action who is a fish out of water in the art galleries that Hester enjoys visiting. He is struggling to find a place in post-war society and so, after being used to a life of luxury, she finds herself living in a shabby boarding house. Whereas her older husband accommodated and indulged her, her new younger partner expects to be the one accommodated and indulged. In effect, there is a role reversal which eventually pushes Hester to grow up.

The actors all give wonderful performances. Rachel Weisz won or was nominated for numerous awards for hers and Tom Hiddleston is very good as her ex-pilot lover. The stand out though is Simon Russell Beale as Hester's husband. He is gentle, pompous, vulnerable, conventional, loyal... as real a person as I've seen on film. His attempts to win Hester back - sensitive and at the same time clumsy - are heartbreaking.

I have mixed feelings abut this film..I realize the book was written some time ago and the themes of searching for the man who will give you enough to keep you alive have been filmed and written about many times before.
That said, Rachel Weisz played the main role with appropriate depth. It was clear that this beautiful woman, who had married a caring but rigid father figure - and his family, was bored to the point of psychosis, in that her life was always hanging by a thread and the possibility of suicide as a way out of her internal and external prison lurked around her, like a ghost.
Meeting an edgy, unreliable, young man, who was attracted by but also refused to become part of her drama, proved to be her downfall and the ending almost a self fulfilling prophecy: her demise.
This was all very dramatic and predictable.
If I have one criticism, it is that I think Tom Hiddleston, one of my favourite actors, was miscast in this film. I did not find them a credible pair and I did not think that this was one of his better films. While Rachel Weisz, was magnificant, as was her long-suffering but boring and pompous husband, who also had problems in that he had not yet untied the apron strings from his mother, and, though a High Court Judge, had little autonomy in his own home.
All the characters were trapped in some way, beyond the relationships themselves. Even the Tom Hiddleston character, who was resisting becoming part of the drama, created drama himself through his inability to attach.
Couple all this with the drama and nostalgia of war time London, and you have a melting pot, which foregrounds pulling together during air-raids, while the internal worlds of individuals are falling apart unnoticed.
