10. FILM: The Deep Blue Sea
The venerable Terence Rattigan play, likely inspired by an episode in his own life when his male lover left him for another man, was previously made into a stagy, melodramatic 1955 film starring Vivien Leigh. Out director Terence Davies has created his own stunningly sensual and thoroughly cinematic adaptation and coaxed a superb performance from Rachel Weisz as married Hester Collyer, whose passion for a younger lover leads to misfortune. Now playing in select theaters.
