The Deep Blue Sea was one of the more anticipated films to make its way through September’s festival gauntlet where it came away with respectful if not rapturous reviews.

Terence Davies adapts Terence Rattigan’s 1952 play with Rachel Weisz as a woman who has an affair with RAF pilot Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Midnight in Paris).

The Deep Blue Sea was picked up over the weekend by Music Box Films for US release. No release date has been set. It will be the closing night film of the London BFI Film Fest and it opens in the UK on November 25.

  1. The cinematic tone poem master Terrence Davies ranks for me among the most accomplished and gifted filmmakers of his generation, and as I’ve stated on previous threads the arrival of this film is cause for celebration, regardless of where it ends up on the critical scale. The trailer here is lovely, and it’s great to see he has tapped into Ms. Weisz’ substantial talent.

    If I could wager I’d say it’s odds-on this will be a big winner.

  2. Trailer makes this look a bit stodgy, but the talent and source material had me primed months ago. The shot of Weisz in the tube is breathtaking.

  3. Stodgy is definitely the sense I got from some of the reviews I read. That’s not an inherently bad thing, but it can be.
