13 Atmospheric Stills From On Chesil Beach (2018)

Ian McEwan’s 2007 novel On Chesil Beach was adapted for the big screen in 2017 with the eponymous film starring Saoirse Ronan and Billy Bowle. Ronan – who also starred in the adaptation of McEwan’s Atonement – shines in the leading role of Florence Ponting, a budding violinist. She has just married Howle’s Edward Mayhew, who is from a family of considerably lower social and financial standing. The story picks up just after their wedding reception as they’re heading to their hotel on Chesil Beach.

Inside, they encounter a few difficulties as they attempt to consummate their marriage. From this point on, the film alternates between the present and the past. Viewers come to know who Florence and Edward were before they met, as their romance bloomed, and the conflicts that ruled over their respective families.

The film’s atmospheric setting of 1960s England is accentuated by its beautiful, colorful cinematography. Here are thirteen of the best stills from On Chesil Beach.
