Charlotte Rampling is nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in this richly intimate, intelligent and quietly explosive British drama by acclaimed director Andrew Haigh. Married for 45 years, without children, Kate (Rampling) and Geoff Mercer (Tom Courtenay) are poised to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a party, when Geoff receives a letter that shakes both of them. The letter, from Switzerland, lets him know that a body has been found: that of Katya, his girlfriend before Kate, who died falling into a fissure in a glacier when the couple were on a walking holiday in 1962. Though Kate continues to prepare for the party, and the couple shares some romantic excitement about it, she becomes increasingly disturbed by Geoff’s preoccupation with Katya. As the celebrations grow closer, they delve further into their past, leaving their future in question.
