The Brit List: ‘Hunger Games,’ ‘Deep Blue Sea’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ (March 23, 2012)
2. Deep Blue Sea opens
Rachel Weisz stars as the tempestuous Hester Collyer in Terence Davies‘ adaptation of Terence Ratigan‘s eponymous 1952 play. The film opens as Hester contemplates suicide as a way out of the title’s dilemma: caught between an unpassionate husband (Simon Russell Beale) and an unstable lover (Tom Hiddleston), Hester tells her story in a well-paced non-linear narrative.
