Screener Squad: Hope Gap

Hope Gap Movie Review


People like to say relationships are hard work. That appears to be true even after nearly three decades. Hope Gap is the story of Grace (Annette Bening) and Edward (Bill Nighy), a couple who have been married for 29 years. When their only son (Josh O’Connor) decides to visit them, Edward makes a confession: he is leaving Grace for another woman. This, of course, sends shockwaves through the family‚Äôs lives and now they must deal with the aftermath. Adrian, Frank, and Ryan review this new drama from the UK.

STARRING: Annette Bening, Bill Nighy, Josh O’Connor, Aiysha Hart, Ryan McKeen, Steven Pacey, Nicholas Burns, Rose Keegan, Nicholas Blane, Sally Rogers
