Love grows stronger when two people stay together for many years. In Ordinary Love, Liam Neeson, Lesley Manville star in a tender middle-aged love story. A story that sees the pair’s relationship challenged when one of them is diagnosed with cancer.
The film recently made it’s debut at Toronto Film Festival, leaving with some strong reviews. On paper this may look a generic love story, but those reviews indicate otherwise. We always talk about love, this film looks a study of love and it’s wonderful power. It’s also great to see Liam Neeson not using his usual particular set of skills for a change. Yes using his dramatic skills instead!
Universal Pictures have released a the film’s UK Trailer, check it out…
Joan and Tom 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 part. 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. ORDINARY LOVE is a story about love, survival and the epic questions life throws at each and every one of us
