What to expect

Laura Jesson is a happily married woman until a chance encounter in a train station café draws her to Dr Alec Harvey. Literally bumping into each other brings temptation, danger and guilt into their lives, and a doomed love affair ensues… A classic love story, ‘Brief Encounter’ was made into a much-loved and hugely successful film in 1945, starring Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard. This 2009 adaptation is faithful to Coward’s original screenplay and features a distinguished cast including Jenny Seagrove and Nigel Havers.
