Hope Gap is a lovely, moving film masterfully acted by Annette Bening and Bill Nighy about the bittersweet end to a 29 year marriage. Based on the play, also written by William Nicholson, the writer and director of this film, it tells the story of his own parents. He is the son played by Josh O'Connor in the film, also a wonderful performance. A moving, emotional independent film just out in theaters this week.
After the screening, Annette Bening was interviewed onstage at the Landmark Theatre in West Los Angeles tonight. She comes across as a hardworking, dedicated actress whose intelligence and subtlety greatly added to this role, and most any other role she turns to.
