Stephen Woolley: A Life In Film

Stephen Woolley

The End Of The Affair (1999)

Based on the melancholy novel of the same name by Graham Greene, The End Of the Affair sees Woolley delivering another study in repressed emotions as Julianne Moore (Oscar nominated for her troubles) and Ralph Fiennes rekindle a long dead extra marital affair in gloom-addled 1940s Britain.



Stylistically beautiful and painfully reserved, The End of The Affair picked up an impressive 10 BAFTA nominations and is a surprisingly savage, difficult watch that lives squarely in the realm of tragedy much more than it does in romance, with Fiennes and Moore rarely better than they both are here. Not much of a date movie, though.
