In post-World War II England, the free-spirited, emotionally complex Hester Collyer (Rachel Weisz) is trapped in a passionless marriage to an older, upper-class judge (Simon Russell Beale). While yearning for a richer, more romantic life, Hester meets Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot, with whom she begins to have a heated affair. But though Hester’s new lover has awakened her sexuality, the reckless, thrill-seeking Freddie—whose best days are behind him—is not capable of giving Hester the love and stability that her husband provided. With her overpowering need for love threatening her well-being and alienating the men in her life, Hester must decide on a direction for herself—unless her situation makes the decision for her.
The Deep Blue Sea is now on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD.
