"What you end up remembering isn't always the same as what you have witnessed," JULIAN BARNES

Based on the Man Booker-winning novel by Julian Barnes, and directed by Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox), THE SENSE OF AN ENDING is a beguiling and affecting story of a man who becomes haunted by his past and is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his current situation in life.

Academy and BAFTA Award-winning British actor Jim Broadbent stars as Tony Webster, a divorced retiree who leads a reclusive and quiet existence until long buried secrets from his past force him to face the flawed recollections of his younger self - including memories of an early girlfriend, Veronica, and the friend who superseded him in her affections, Adrian - the truth about his first love (Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling) and the devastating consequences of decisions made a lifetime ago.

A thoughtful, intelligent film in the vein of Atonement, THE SENSE OF AN ENDING explores how memory contributes to how we contextualise our lives, and the damage done when we fail to realise memory is always subjective. It is a story about reflection, first love, broken hearts, deceit, regret, guilt, and consequences of actions ....
