Based on Raymond Briggs’ award-winning graphic novel, this sweet, poignant cartoon tells the story of his mum and dad (voiced by Brenda Blethyn and Jim Broadbent).

Starting in the 1920s with the courtship of former lady’s maid Ethel and milkman Ernest, it follows their lives until their deaths in the 1970s while the century’s momentous political events and social changes go on around them.

The artwork captures the simple, understated charm of Briggs’ original book to perfection and Blethyn and Broadbent are ideal.
