2017 Movies: The Sense of an Ending
“The Sense of Regret. The Sense of Forgiveness. The Sense of Love. The Sense of an Ending”. The screen adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel The Sense of an Ending, directed Ritesh Batra, follows Tony Webster as he deals with his haunting past, facing the truth about his first love and the devastating impact his decisions had.
With a cast including Jim Broadbent, Michelle Dockery, Harriet Walter, Charlotte Rampling, and Emily Mortimer, The Sense of an Ending has Max Richter as score composer. The trailer, highlighting that “What we remember is only half the story”, features Oscar winner Jim Broadbent as he faces his flawed recollections of his younger self, talking about his best friend, who “mysteriously died”, and the woman he loved.
The film is scheduled to be released in 2017, first in the US, on March 10, and in the UK on March 24.
