It was recently announced that English director Terence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea would be closing this year’s BFI London Film Festival, to go hand in hand with another film that Rachel Weisz is starring in, 360, which will be opening the festival on 12th October.
A lovely first clip from the film has now surfaced, The Playlist report, and it gives a great feel of the beautiful moments we can expect from the film ahead of its November release here.
“Set in post-war Britain, this deeply moving story is an adaptation of Terence Rattigan’s classic play, The Deep Blue Sea is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what – or whom – should Hester choose?”
It doesn’t give anything away but a taste, leaving you wanting more, which is always good for a clip to do. The music, Jo Stafford’s cover of You Belong To Me, fits the scene wonderfully, and sets the tone for what is a visually beautiful moment showing Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston dancing in each other’s arms.
Hiddleston is now best known for his role as Loki in Thor this year, a role he’ll be reprising next year in The Avengers, and he looks great as the young man with whom Weisz’s Hester is having an affair. Weisz herself of course is well known for a number of roles, including The Mummy, The Constant Gardener, and Constantine, and was most recently seen on the BBC in Page Eight, opposite Bill Nighy and Ralph Fiennes.
If you’re lucky enough to be going to this year’s BFI London Film Festival, then The Deep Blue Sea is certainly one to watch if you have the chance. We saw some brilliant images for the film at the end of July, and this first clip from it only cements the beauty we saw in them. Without further ado, here’s the lovely new clip.
