What do we know about the story?
Put simply, the film is a love story, set between the present day and the 1960’s, that hops back and forth in time and location from London and the French Riviera.
Studio Canal who financially backs the film, describe the story: “It tells the tale of elegant Jennifer Stirling and how her life becomes inextricably interwoven with that of Ellie Haworth, in life-changing events that connect them across almost half a century. Jennifer lives a luxurious life with her wealthy and powerful husband, Laurence. When an unfortunate event wipes her memory, she struggles to find her identity until she stumbles upon wistful love letters hidden in her home.”
Ellie who is a journalist in London in modern times, becomes enthralled by Jennifer’s love letters, that outline a passionate affair she had with a foreign correspondent. It takes the help of an archivist to piece together the 1960’s story, but along the way Ellie and Jennifer’s lives become intrinsically linked forever.
