    In 1962, two young Brits spend their honeymoon on Chesil Beach and struggle in their pursuit of love and sex. As they fail to make love passionately, they recall the past and face the reality. The young couple can´t shake off their conservative self-consciousness and start doubting if their relationship is true love. Chesil Beach becomes a place of regret and atonement, sentiments which are author Ian McEwan’s forte. The film drew much attention because McEwan adapted his own book into a screenplay. The two stars of the film, Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle, delicately express the waves of emotions. The unique camera movement that conveys the couple’s emotions as they walk on the beach is a particularly daring attempt. It is part of the director’s effort to find different ways to depict moments of passion and calmness. [LEE Sang-yong]
