STEPHEN BROWN | IRELAND | 2017 | 86 MIN | NR
Grieving after the death of his wife, art historian Max Morden (Ciarán Hinds) returns to the sleepy seaside resort where he spent summers as a child. Max lodges at a boarding house he once frequented, where frosty proprietor Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling), and eccentric resident Blunden (Karl Johnson), now reside. While Max attempts to deal with the loss of his wife, and recalls moments with his departed partner Anna (Sinéad Cusack), he also confronts a distant trauma from the past. The Sea is a haunting, uplifting meditation on the human condition.
Cast: Ciarán Hinds, Charlotte Rampling
