The Sense of an Ending

108 minutes 2017 6.4

Based on an award-winning novel, The Sense of an Ending is about what we remember from our youth is not necessarily reliable in retrospect. Especially where we have been strongly emotionally involved, and we have done things as newly in love, or as terribly angry and disappointed.

Tony Webster (Jim Broadbent) is now divorced and retired and lives a relatively quiet life. One day he learns that the mother of his girlfriend at the university, Veronica, has left a diary for him. Written by his best friend, who was with Veronica at the time after Tony.

Tony's attempt to get hold of the diary, which is now with his ex-girlfriend, makes him think about what happened then, when they were young and in a whirlwind of events. When he digs deeper into the past, everything comes back to him. The first love, the broken heart, the deception, the remorse and the guilt. Can Tony face the truth and take responsibility for the consequences of the perhaps not so honorable decisions he made so long ago? And what really happened?

The Sense of an Ending is a British drama of the best brand, directed by Ritesh Batra, with brilliant actors in both the young and older roles.
