The Sense of an Ending is a 2017 British-American mystery drama film directed by Ritesh Batra and written by Nick Payne, based on the novel of the same name by Julian Barnes.

The film stars Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Emily Mortimer and Michelle Dockery.

Jim Broadbent stars as Tony Webster, the curmudgeonly divorced owner of a specialist camera shop in London.

He still has a cordial relationship with his ex-wife, Margaret (Harriet Walter), and the two share a strong bond with their daughter, Michelle Dockery’s matter-of-fact Susie, who’s extremely pregnant and on the verge of having her first child on her own.

The arrival of a registered letter disrupts his routine. It turns out that the mother of his first love, Veronica (played as a young woman by Freya Mavor, and as an older woman by Charlotte Rampling), a vivacious young woman he met in college, has died.

She has willed him an item that Veronica, whom he hasn’t seen in over 50 years, now refuses to give him.

As Tony tries to track it down, he shares with Margaret the story of this young romance, as well as the friendship with a fellow classmate that came to a tragic end.

The Sense of an Ending has a 15 rating. No one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in a cinema.

The Sense of an Ending is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 13 October at 7.30pm. Door open at 7.00pm. Seats cannot be reserved, so please come early.
