The Sense of an Ending
What if time could flow backwards, to remind us that our life is a story we have told to ourselves? And this is my story.
The Sense of an Ending Synopsis
Tony Webster, divorced and retired, leads a reclusive and relatively quiet life.
One day, he learns that the mother of his university girlfriend, Veronica, left in her will a diary kept by his best friend who dated Veronica after she and Tony parted ways.
Tony’s quest to recover the diary, now in Veronica’s possession, forces him to revisit his flawed recollections of his friends and of his younger self. As he digs deeper into his past, it all starts to come back; the first love, the broken heart, the deceit, the regrets, the guilt... Can Tony bear to face the truth and take responsibility for the devastating consequences of actions he took so long ago?
