Review: The Deep Blue Sea

Aug 3, 2012

If you miss the days of Merchant-Ivory films, or if you just enjoy a film with a stellar British pedigree, then The Deep Blue Sea is just the ticket.  Based on the play by Terence Rattigan, scribe of such well-regarded works as Separate Tables and The Browning Version, The Deep Blue Sea is a tragic drama of love, lust and infidelity. Terence Davies, a director with a short, but highly respected list of credits, including Distant Voices, Still Lives, and The Long Day Closes, lovingly directs The Deep Blue Sea.
