Colin Firth (Mamma Mia, Bridget Jones's Diary) and Kenneth Branagh (Valkyrie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) star as two young war-weary veterans who spend a summer month in a peaceful Yorkshire town in order to escape the horrors of war.
Whilst Tom Birken (Firth) spends his month in the country uncovering and restoring a historical war painting in the local church, another veteran, Charles Moon (Branagh), is looking for the grave of an ancestor of the patroness of the church who fought in the Crusades. But their work at the church takes an explosive turn as one ignites long-denied passion within the Reverand's young wife, which forces the other veteran to face his own dark desires.
The film screened at Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section.
