Captured live from Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End in 2014

Written by David Hare
Directed by Stephen Daldry


Returning to the big screen after nearly ten years, Bill Nighy (Living) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) feature in the critically acclaimed revival of David Hare’s play, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience).

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her former lover. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

‘Moving picture of politics and love’


‘Carey Mulligan gives a performance of extraordinarily contained power’


‘Stephen Daldry’s excellent revival keeps the play in its period’
