45 Years

Drama


 

News from the past disturbs a couple as they prepare for a party to celebrate their forty-fifth wedding anniversary.

Apparently you can learn something about your spouse that causes you to question everything about a life shared across decades. Really? It is a shaky premise for a movie if you believe marriage is a partnership rather than some form of ownership. There is something very perturbing about the central couple if their life as a "we" cannot accommodate some "me" about things in the past. Maybe they are just uncomfortably British and repressed. Can you keep a secret?
