Plot synopsis: “Based on the novel by former war correspondent J.M. Ledgard, the story begins with a deliriously wild love affair between two people near the resort town of Dieppe, on France’s northern coast. James (James McAvoy) is a globe-trotting water engineer, while Danielle (Alicia Vikander) is a bio-mathematician working on a deep-sea diving project. They fall rapidly and unexpectedly into each other’s arms, even though their jobs are destined to separate them. Neither is fully prepared for what will happen next.
While Danny, fascinated with exploring the ocean’s greatest depths, sets off on a perilous quest, James leaves for Somalia, where he is soon sucked into a geopolitical vortex that puts him in grave danger. Both characters are subject to different kinds of isolation as they pine for each other; their determination to reconnect becomes as much an existential journey as a love story.”

Hidden away in her family’s estate, the lonely girl meets a string of suitors in her parents’ futile attempt to break the curse. Each eligible bachelor is enamored with Penelope and her sizable dowry; until her curse is revealed. Lemon, a mischievous and eager tabloid reporter, wants a photograph of the mysterious Penelope and hires Max to pose as a prospective suitor to get the shot. The handsome down-on-his luck gambler finds himself falling for Penelope, but, not wanting to disappoint her or to expose his surreptitious ways, he decides to disappear. Fed up by his latest betrayal and determined to live life on her own terms, Penelope breaks free from her family and ventures into the world alone. She finds adventure and Annie, her first friend, and becomes the person she was meant to be.”
