The Sense of an Ending (15).
1 hour 48 minutes
Ritesh Batra’s follow up to Lunchbox is this tremendous adaptation of Julian Barnes gripping, hugely intelligent novel. Ordinary bloke, Tony Webster (the ever dependable Broadbent), leads a quiet, reclusive existence until he is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his entire life. Long buried secrets from his past force him to face the flawed memories of his younger self, the truth about his first love (the terrific Rampling), and the devastating consequences of decisions he made a lifetime ago. A mature reflection on life, love, ageing, memory and regret, superbly realised by an all-star British cast.
