The Sea (Ciaran Hinds) - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
TO celebrate the DVD release of The Sea on June 23, 2014, we’re giving away a DVD of the film to three lucky winners.
Art historian Max Morden (Ciarán Hinds – Munich, Rome) returns to the sleepy seaside resort where he spent summers as a child after losing his wife (Sinéad Cusack – winner of Best Supporting Actress at IFTAs).
Max lodges at a boarding house he once frequented, where frosty proprietor Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling, The Verdict, The Duchess), and eccentric resident Blunden (Karl Johnson, The Illusionist, Rome), now reside. Before long – and despite protestations from his daughter Clare (Ruth Bradley, Grabbers, Primeval) – Max revisits the ghosts of his past.
Based on the Man Booker prize-winning novel by John Banville, The Sea is a haunting, uplifting, meditation on the human condition – at times elegiac, poetic, and nostalgic. A story of memory, love, loss, regret… and the persistent possibility of rebirth.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:

A) Dan Brown
