Terence Davies ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ to close LFF

The London Film Festival announced that Terence Davies’ adaptation of Terence Rattigan’s play The Deep Blue Sea, will close out this years festival. The movie marks a return to fiction movie-making for Davies after his documentary Of Time and the City took Cannes by storm in 2008. Davies is responsible for a number of great British films including The House of Mirth and The Long Day Closes so his upcoming film is highly anticipated by most cinephiles. The feature will star Rachel Weisz, Simon Russell Beale and Tom Hiddleston. Weisz stars a woman approaching a middle life crisis and leaves her privileged life as the wife of a high court judge (Beale) to embark on an affair with a dashing young pilot (Hiddleston). The festival is set to run from October 12-27.
