Watch: New Trailer For Terence Davies' 'The Deep Blue Sea' Starring Rachel Weisz & Tom Hiddleston

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 28, 2012 at 1:33PM

This writer is a bit baffled as to why Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea" didn't get more buzz on the festival circuit last year. An auteur behind the camera, with a pretty starry cast in front of it led by Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston it seemed like a no brainer, but it never really gained true momentum. Perhaps it was the deliberate pacing (some would argue "slow" but they'd be missing the point), or the distinctly stylized look that put people off but the film is sumptuous, and it's arriving in theaters soon.

This writer is a bit baffled as to why Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea" didn't get more buzz on the festival circuit last year. An auteur behind the camera, with a pretty starry cast in front of it led by Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston, it seemed like a no brainer, but it never really gained true momentum. Perhaps it was the deliberate pacing (some would argue "slow" but they'd be missing the point), or the distinctly stylized look that put people off, but the film is sumptuous, and it's arriving in theaters soon.

A brand new trailer for 'Sea' has landed, offering a generous tease of the film Davies has put together. The story centers on the young Hester (Weisz) whose marriage to the well-to-do and much older William (Simon Russell Beale) is crumbling. To that end, she engages in a searing, passionate affair with WWII pilot Freddie (Hiddleston) -- one that is doomed from the start. The film is a deeply rousing affair, dripping in emotion and sensuality that is raw and vital. Davies shows a tremendous restraint at the helm, and yet the power of the film is never lessened an iota; it will also be one of the most gorgeous looking films you'll see all year (you can read our review here).

The film opens in limited release on March 23rd. Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.
