Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson, and Samuel West.

I watched this today. I was not into it much at all and thought the story was pretty dumb.

Well, it (the book) has one thing going for it...

It gave rise to a line in this classic Peep Show scene:

I liked it.

It started out slow but then got interesting. A top notch performance by Ronan and Howie.

I wish Saoirse Ronan was my girlfriend.


Spoiler:
A sad ending and wish they could have stayed together though it would be kind of weird to be with a partner who is not into sex though maybe it gets better later>
