Acting legends Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay are set to star in “Weekend” filmmaker and “Looking” producer Andrew Haigh’s “45 Years” at BFI Film Fund, Film4, The Bureau and Creative England.
Haigh adapted the screenplay from a short story by the poet David Constantine. The story follows the five days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary.
Planning for a lavish party comes to a halt when a letter arrives for the husband indicating that the body of his first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved, in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps.
By the time the party arrives, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate. Tristan Goligher is producing and filming begins this Spring.
