'It’s a richly detailed mosaic of a movie which pays as much attention to emotional authenticity – a dull ache of grief which is the aftermath of the First World War and a smouldering yearning between the two lovers – as it does to the story itself.' - Wendy Ide, Screen International

From the producers of Carol (LIFF 2015 closing film), adapted from Graham Swift’s novel by Alice Birch (Lady Macbeth - LIFF 2016), and directed by Eva Husson (Girls of the Sun - LIFF 2018), Mothering Sunday is a story of grief, responsibility, and secret love in post-WWI England. On Mother’s Day in 1924, housemaid Jane Fairchild (Odessa Young) finds herself alone and spends an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover Paul (Josh O’Connor). But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.

Closed captions (subtitles plus descriptions of non-dialogue audio) for customers who are D/deaf or hard of hearing will be presented with the screening of Mothering Sunday on 10 November.
