Hope Gap

William Nicholson, UK, 2019o


Grace and Edward have been halfway happily married for 29 years, but Edward seems to be up to something. One day he calls the grown-up son Jamie into the house and tells first his son, then his wife that he will leave her because he has fallen in love. Grace doesn't want to admit the end of the relationship and after the first shock she starts to revolt against the separation with all means. And the separated couple carries everything out through their son.

La merveilleuse Annette Benning n'a pas la tâche facile ici, en tant qu'épouse abandonnée à 60 ans, qui n'a pas vu venir la rupture et qui y résiste tant bien que mal. Ajoutez à cela le fait que son mari est un taiseux de premier ordre et que tous deux impliquent leur fils adulte dans le drame de leur séparation. Le film est crédible et bien fait : ceux qui ne peuvent accepter un accident et ne veulent pas voir leur part de responsabilité dans celui-ci agissent souvent avec autant de suffisance.
