"Have you read Freud?", asks the 18-year-old Edward within minutes of paying an unexpected call at the bleak, chilly North London flat of his father's former mistress Kyra. And a beat later, of course, you're being told what Freud says: "I read some recently. I told Dad everything had to come out. That you pay a price. For everything you repress, there's a price to be paid."
Matthew Beard (Edward Sergeant), Carey Mulligan (Kyra Hollis), Bill Nighy (Tom Sergeant). 'Skylight' follows the relationship between schoolteacher Kyra Hollis and her former lover Tom Sergeant, who rekindle their love on a cold London evening. As Kyra learns that Tom's wife has recently died and that he has become a successful restaurateur, their mutual desires draw in a dangerous battle of opposite ideas and thoughts on life.
