Hester Collyer is the wife of an upper-class judge and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page, a young, troubled former royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated.

Our take

Beloved English director Terence Davies (The Long Day Closes, A Quiet Passion) made a triumphant return to dramatic filmmaking after a decade away with this glowing, gorgeous melodrama impeccably acted and suffused with a melancholy romanticism that reminds us of Wong Kar-wai. It was worth the wait!
