VOD Release: Hope Gap

May 8, 2020

By John Corrado

Annette Bening and Bill Nighy star in Hope Gap, which had its world premiere at TIFF last year, as an old married couple who are going through a divorce. The film is being released for rent and purchase on a variety of VOD platforms today, including iTunes.

When Edward (Nighy) announces that he would rather live with another woman, Grace (Bening) is left emotionally despondent and struggling to accept the breakup, as their young adult son, Jamie (Josh O’Connor), acts as a mediator between them.

While the film itself feels somewhat conventional, I liked the performances in Hope Gap when I saw it at TIFF, and the acting is strong enough to make it worth a look at home. You can read my full review of the drama right here.

Film Rating: ★★½ (out of 4)

Release Date: March 13th, 2020 (Theatrical); May 8th, 2020 (VOD)
