Well, Fontaine gives us one idea. Their 19-year-old surfer sons, Ian Xavier Samuel and Tom James Frecheville , have the waves all to themselves.

One summer, all four are confronted by simmering emotions that have been mounting between them, and each find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. Now in their mid-40s, they remain as close as ever. Ian now works with his mother for a successful yacht-building company, and Tom is studying theater. Their isolation is idyllic but near complete, and thus a source, it might be suggested, of what happens next.
Time passes, and Ian goes for a swim in the ocean until he comes to a free-floating dock in the water, the same dock where he first began his flirtation with Roz, and Roz and Lil used to swim to as girls. Some time later, Tom marries Mary. Lil and Roz are two lifelong friends, having grown up together as neighbors in an idyllic beach town. Watts and Wright bring great dignity to the roles as well as a relatable vulnerability, as their characters acknowledge that time is gaining on them. It's the sort of plot that would raise an eyebrow or two in Seal Rocks, a fishing village, population 131, which swells with tourists in the summer.
This made me think about what i would have thought if the gender of the characters would be the opposite. Roz goes to Lil's work and they discuss what happened with their sons.

One summer, all four are confronted by simmering emotions that have been mounting between them, and each find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. Both Roz and Lil admit that they're happy, and they agree to keep going. That night, he comes to Roz' door and begs to be let in, but Roz turns him down, crying quietly in her room. Tom, meanwhile, initiates his affair with Lil out of spiteful revenge—but the interlude quickly turns into something more.
Years pass, and now Ian and Tom are both married, and they both have daughters, Shirley and Alice. That night, they all eat dinner together, during which Tom gets drunk and takes a walk to clear his head. And the producers of Adoration were so blown away by the beauty of the area, they have given the Daily Telegraph these exclusive on-location photographs. Of 74 reviews counted by , 32% were positive, with a of 4. There's no room for kidding here, though; Fontaine treats the love scenes—and the relationships as a whole, which go on for a couple of years—with a seriousness that eventually morphs into melodrama.
