4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Hester floated into his shadow, 16 April 2012
This review is from: The Deep Blue Sea [2011] [DVD] (DVD)
A picture of a street then the text 'London' followed by 'Around 1950' gives us the first indication that this is going to be a desperate tale of loneliness and isolation. The use of the word 'around' suggests that the exact time that the central character Hester Collyer played superbly by Rachel Weisz attempted suicide, had been forgotten or never noted.

Hester finds herself desolate in dimension, clouded in sterile rooms in the presence of drowning aristocrats. Married to a kind man who she finds no inspiration, no passion, no life.

She is haunted by all the space that she will live without love, unable to enjoy the light that pours through the clouds. Then as if from the sky Freddie an ex-RAF pilot brings passion back into her life, in all its guises, torn apart by stormy love's gate, she floats like a phantom desperate to hold on to a man whose spirit is restless.

You will be hard pushed to find a film that deals with the complexity of love, loss, depression and desperation as much as 'Deep Blue Sea', a surprising play written by Terence Rattigan who was more accustomed to writing plays like 'The Prince and the Showgirl' which was famously adapted to the screen starring Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier.
