“The film’s whimsical, intellectual charm is right there […] yet it spices the drama with a pleasingly weighted European fatalistic urgency.” — Variety

Irish Premiere
Competition Entry

It’s winter in Montauk, at the far end of Long Island. There are two deck chairs on the windswept beach. The chairs are waiting for two people who have, for a long time, been lost to each other. He is a writer and has come from Berlin. She is a New York lawyer. Many years before, they had a fling, but they were too young to know they had each met the love of their lives. Now they have come back to Montauk, filled with regret and hope. The bodies remember. For them, it feels like the next day after the last one they were together. They do not know if it is possible to reverse time. In Montauk, they find out.

Return to Montauk marks the debut of celebrated novelist, essayist and dramatist Colm Tobín as a screenwriter.
