Now adapted for the big screen – a small-screen outing is likely during the festive season – this charming, touching, beautifully animated British film uses a host of familiar voices, notably Broadbent and Blethyn as the eponymous Ernest and Ethel to bring the novel to life.

The film remains faithful to Briggs’ original version, incorporating key events of the 20th century.

 

A celebration of ‘ordinary’ lives and a heart-warming portrayal of a successful marriage.
