A retired English couple (played by screen legends Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay) reflect on their lives after nearly a half-century together, in this wonderfully nuanced character study from writer-director Andrew Haigh. Retired couple Geoff and Kate pass their days quietly on their country property near a small Norfolk village. One day Geoff receives news from his past. As the news sinks in, hidden tensions between Geoff and Kate begin to emerge as Geoff is drawn into the past.
Haigh’s decision to favour small, melancholic moments over major dramatic incidents, along with the attention he pays to the subtleties of body language and facial expression, allow 45 Years to find a natural build to its finale. Courtenay and Rampling deliver performances that can easily be counted among the best in their respective careers. At once restrained and powerful, 45 Years is a cinematic gem that reminds us of the power of film to encompass a lifetime of emotion.
