Bill Nighy returns to the KFF Screen playing opposite Annette Bening in this nuanced relationship drama.

Grace and Edward have been married thirty-three years. When their son Jamie comes home to visit them in the fading seaside town where he grew up. Edward tells him that he plans to leave Grace, the next day. Hope Gap tracks the unravelling of three lives.

Thanks to Curzon


Nighy gives a master class in withdrawn, mumbling ineffectualness... while Bening is superb as a retiree whose shock at her disengaged husband inspires a suite of conflicting emotions.
Screen International

Considerably more nuanced and mature than your typical relationship drama...
