First Look: Rachel Weisz & Tom Hiddleston from 'The Deep Blue Sea'
One of my favorite actors at the moment is Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in Thor (and The Avengers), also appeared in Midnight in Paris as F. Scott Fitzgerald, and will be in Steven Spielberg's War Horse, too. Hiddleston also stars in an upcoming indie romantic-drama titled The Deep Blue Sea which will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this fall, as was just announced. Rachel Weisz also stars in the period drama as the wife of a British Judge who gets caught up in a self-destructive love affair with a Royal Air Force pilot (Hiddleston) in the 1950s. TIFF.net has a batch of five first look photos as can be seen below.
Master chronicler of post-War England Terence Davies (Distant Voices Still Lives, The Neon Bible, Of Time and the City) directs Weisz as a woman whose overpowering, obsessive love alienates the men around her and destroys her well-being. Based on Terence Rattigan's play. Hester Collyer (Weisz) leads a privileged life in 1950s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young ex-RAF pilot (Hiddleston), with whom she has fallen passionately in love. It's playing at the Toronto Film Fest, and I'm hoping to see it.
