The Sense of an End­ing

The Daily Telegraph - Review - - Film -

Ju­lian Barnes’s novel about the slip­pery na­ture of the past is a tricky prospect for cin­ema, which play­wright Nick Payne and direc­tor Ritesh Ba­tra grap­ple with man­fully in this me­thod­i­cal adap­ta­tion. Jim Broadbent is Tony, a di­vorced Lon­doner in his 60s forced to re­assess ev­ery­thing that hap­pened in his school days, when his friend­ship with a bril­liant con­tem­po­rary and first re­la­tion­ship came un­stuck. Broadbent is com­pelling, though Billy Howle (left), as his younger self, and Har­riet Wal­ter, as his ex-wife, are bet­ter yet. 15 cert, 108 min
