Caitlin (Miller) is Thomas' free-spirited wife, while Vera (Knightley) is the long-lost teenage sweetheart who later reconnects with Thomas. Despite their romantic rivalry, the two women form a surprisingly close bond. The trio is unusually blissful until Vera's husband, a handsome soldier (Murphy), sends their uninhibited lives spiraling out of control.
The Edge of Love was directed by award winner John Maybury (Love is the Devil), written by Sharman Macdonald (Windfall), and produced by Rebekah Gilbertson and Sarah Radclyffe.
