Curzon are delighted to announce two time Oscar nominated writer and director William Nicholson's (Les Misérables, Gladiator, Unbroken) HOPE GAP will be previewing in UK cinemas on Friday 7th August before arriving to UK cinemas and Curzon Home Cinema on 28th August.
Grace (Academy Award nominated Annette Bening - American Beauty, Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool) and Edward (Bill Nighy - Love Actually, Page Eight), married for 29 years, live in a small seaside town near a cove under the cliffs called Hope Gap. When their son Jamie (Josh O'Connor - God's Own Country, The Crown) comes to visit for the weekend, Edward informs him that he plans to leave Grace, that same day.
HOPE GAP tracks the unravelling of three lives, through stages of shock, disbelief, and anger, to a resolution of sorts.
There are no villains; only good people who have lived too long with old mistakes and are now paying the price. There are no easy answers and no simple paths to redemption. A husband, a wife and a son are all forced to face hard truths, and out of those truths, to fashion new lives. In the end, HOPE GAP is a story of survival. A story of hope. Watch the trailer above.
