The winner of the Silver Bear for Best Actress (Charlotte Rampling) and Best Actor (Tom Courtenay) at the Berlin International Film Festival, Andrew Haigh’s (Weekend, Looking) movie 45 Years is a moving and profound look at marriage and the secrets we keep.
There is just one week until Kate Mercer’s (Charlotte Rampling) 45th wedding anniversary, and the planning for the party is going well. But then a letter arrives for her husband (Tom Courtenay). 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 is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate.
British actor Tom Courtenay has twice been nominated for acting Oscars. First in 1966 for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Doctor Zhivago. And again in 1984 for Best Actor for his performance in The Dresser.
