If you’ve read the Ian McEwan novel (I haven’t), you might have the patience to sit thru this film. It centers around a newlywed couple on their honeymoon, which goes from awkward to disastrous. There are also flashbacks to the progress of their love affair and other formative moments in their past. Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle do a good job of making the couple interesting, but the first hour of the film moves at a slow pace that challenges patience. Once the final conflict occurs, the emotions are ramped up to provide a somewhat satisfying (if not predictable) finish.
