Hester Collyer, the wife of a High Court judge, a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page, a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated. Nearly abandoned by Freddie, Hester attempts to win him back through a desperate gesture. This only serves to estrange her more from the men in her life and reality itself.
In a deal closed prior to its final public screening in Toronto, Terence Davies' The Deep Blue Sea, starring Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Whistleblower), Olivier Award winner Tom Hiddleston (Steven Spielberg's War Horse, Thor) and BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning theatre actor Simon Russell Beale (An Ideal Husband, London Assurance), has been acquired by Music Box Films, who have taken US rights from Protagonist Pictures.
The Deep Blue Sea is Music Box's first acquisition of an English language film. In a swift move following the world premiere, they fended off competition from at least three other bidders, and the deal was concluded by Protagonist Pictures CEO Ben Roberts and Music Box's Managing Director Ed Arentz. Music Box Films' recent slate includes the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, which collectively registered nearly $22 million in US theatrical box office receipts.Read More
