When web designer Jamie (Josh O’Connor) returns to his parents’ bohemian coastal home for the weekend, he’s prepared for the theatrics of poetry editor Grace and history teacher Edward as they argue in the kitchen. But when Edward pulls Jamie aside to reveal that after 29 years of marriage he’s had enough and his bags are packed, it’s clear that an almighty storm is about to descend. It turns out that Hell hath no fury like a 60-something divorcée. Annette Bening gives a barn-storming performance as the acidic and often unreasonable Grace, firing out snappy one-liners whilst undergoing an emotional apocalypse, and Bill Nighy is superb as a quiet man who just wants to update Wikipedia in peace. Shot with a ravishing sense of design and colour, this is an emotionally astute portrait of a marriage; of regrets uncovered, decisions made too late and the precariousness of hope.
