On Chesil Beach trailer: Romantic period piece starring Saoirse Ronan

In a world a million miles away from Lady Bird, Saoirse Ronan will be back on our screens again soon enough in On Chesil Beach. Lionsgate released the UK trailer for the film which you watch above.

It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Billy Howle) are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. However, the hotel is old fashioned and stifling, and underlying tensions between the young couple surface and cast unexpected shadows over their long anticipated wedding night.

Dominic Cooke is in the directors seat and author Ian McEwan has adapted the screenplay from his own novel. The supporting cast features Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson and Samuel West.

On Chesil Beach will be in UK cinemas on June 15th.
