45 Years

April 17, 2016

It usually takes a few decades to sort these things out, but it’s just possible that what Charlotte Rampling does in “45 Years” may someday be considered one of the greatest performances by an actress in the history of the movies. Up there with Maria Falconetti in “The Passion of Joan of Arc,” Gena Rowlands in “A Woman Under the Influence,” Meryl Streep in “Sophie’s Choice.” Maybe not. All I know is that I emerged from the movie in a white-out haze of emotions, synapses overloaded, grateful beyond words to an actress who can convey so much with such subtlety of means.–Boston Globe

There is just one week until Kate Mercer’s (Best Actress nominee 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. If you prefer acting prowess to Star Wars, you can’t do much better than this. England / 95 min
