“A brilliant adaptation of Julian Barnes’novel” READERS DIGEST.

“A gripping film that seizes your focus and never let’s go” N.Y.OBSERVER.

“Literature on the screen is not everyone’s favorite style of filmmaking, but when a good novel is intelligently rendered and sensitively adapted, with every nut and bolt in place, nothing thrills me more. Such a film is Nick Payne’s adaptation of Julian Barnes’ prize-winning British novel The Sense of an Ending, an exemplary work about the way we select and file our memories, conveniently editing what we choose to forget. Directed with polish and restraint by Ritesh Batra, this is a gripping film that seizes your focus and never lets go. If this one fails to move you, then you don’t really care much about the power of movies.” NEW YORK OBSERVER.

“Based on a novel by Julian Barnes, “The Sense of an Ending” chronicles one man’s efforts to come to terms with his past, his memory and himself. Working from a screenplay by Nick Payne, director Ritesh Batra (“The Lunchbox”) has his hands full juggling the elements of Barnes’ complicated narrative. But the rich literary sensibility of the source material comes through beautifully.” ST LOUIS POST-DESPATCH.
