“Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.”

Overview

A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952.

When Hester Collyer (Helen McCrory) is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.

Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
