The film is based on Raymond Briggs’ award-winning graphic novel “Ethel & Ernest”, a heartwarming, humorous and deeply touching tribute to the author’s parents. It tells the story of a working class family during the World War II and the post-war period. It is not only nostalgic, but also socially aware, echoing the spirit of the British social realists – Ken Loach and Mike Leigh.
