The Deep Blue Sea Adaptation process

2022-03-29 08:01
During the adaptation process, director Terence Davies kept the heroine's emotions in mind, that is, Hester's emotions, and adapted the script from her point of view. Because in this film, Hester is not only the protagonist, but also the clue and soul of the film. So the director rewrote a lot of lines for the film, all created to show Hester's psychology.
The story of the film takes place in the 1950s, during the Cold War period. Therefore, in the original drama, the feeling of being cold, flustered and on the verge of being triggered abounds. But in the movie, the traces of Cold War are very shallow, replaced by a sense of uncertainty and panic between human nature. Because director Terence Davies simply likes a woman, a man, standing quietly in front of a window sill. Not very interested in the era, Cold War, or those elements of the social environment at the time. Therefore, when adapting, we focus on the descriptions born out of love in the film. For such a script adaptation, producer Sean O'Connor called it an "anti-era drama".
