Directed by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, and starring Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson, ‘Ordinary Love’ will have its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, 2-13 October, before its cinema release on 6 December.
‘Ordinary Love’ is a story about love, survival and the epic questions life throws at each and every one of us. It tells the story of Joan and Tom, who have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a lifetime together and a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour in equal parts.
When Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as they are faced with the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might become of them if something were to happen to her.
