Synopsis

Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay star as an aged couple in this British drama written and directed by Andrew Haigh. In the run-up to their 45th wedding anniversary, Kate (Rampling) and Geoff Mercer (Courtenay) are rocked by the news that the body of Geoff's former fiancée has been discovered in the Swiss Alps, 50 years after she disappeared on a walking holiday with Geoff. Although Kate knew of Geoff's first love he kept their engagement a secret. As Geoff reminisces about his past and debates whether to fly to Switzerland to formally identify the body, his wife is left to re-evaluate their long relationship. As Kate finalises preparations for their anniversary party, she begins to delve deeper into her husband's past and makes new discoveries that threaten to spell the end for their 45-years of marriage. Rampling was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
