Several earlier novels as well as some other earlier films had adumbrated the central conflict of Brief Encounter. Perhaps it was the sheer ordinariness of the protagonists and how they are performed by less well-known actors that made such a strong appeal. By comparison with the film, the Coward play from which it is adapted appears limited and somewhat stiff.
