The Sense of an Ending

Drama


 

Tony Webster's life of habit and routine is upturned by a solicitor's letter which awakens a troubling incident from the past involving his first love.

Incidents are placed like jigsaw pieces in this well-crafted story that emerges with the ghosts of a romance from decades ago, turning up again to haunt the present. The actors turn in performances that fit the characters and their quirks as they were originally conceived on the page. Comparisons are inevitable, and readers will be pleased that the movie does credit to its origins as an award winning novel. It all makes sense in the end.
