With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.

Helen McCrory and director Carrie Cracknell reunite following the acclaimed Medea in 2014.

The Deep Blue Seais streaming from 7pm UK time on Thursday 9 July until 7pm on Thursday 16 July.

The running time is 2 hours 5 minutes with a very short interval.
