Movie Info

An unexpected visit causes a man to wonder what path he should have taken in life in this drama. In 1977, Chris (Christian Bale) and Marion (Emily Watson) are a staid married couple living in a working-class community near the outskirts of London, where the Metro tube line dead-ends. While Marion is reasonably happy, Chris is bored and restless, and he often daydreams about how his life could have been different. Chris and Marion first met in Paris in 1968, when revolution was in the air and

Underrated.

For all the nudity and sexual content, Philip Saville's unoriginal and predictable film is, at its core, no different from one you'd find premiering on network television.

A moving film about the compromises of adulthood, but perhaps a little too earnest.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

A deft morality tale about the engines of sexual desire and jealousy.

With terrific performances from Bale and Watson, the film is memorable and unique instead of plain and watchable.

likely to strike a chord with a lot of young husbands, especially those who find themselves sometimes envying their single friends. ...Bale and Watson are utterly credible...

The film flips back and forth between the Beatlemania-era of the early '60s and their suburban period of the '70s...

Audience Reviews for Metroland

A really well done movie with strong performances and visual style. Christian Bale played a great angsty working man looking back on his past. Emily Watson also did a nice job playing such a sweet, yet controlling wife.
