A Part of The Music Box 90th Anniversary | A Music Box Films Release

Freely adapted from Terence Rattigan’s landmark play, Terence Davies brings his own distinctive stamp to this heart-breaking story of life in post-War London. Rachel Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of an upper-class judge and a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated.
