There’s no shortage of talent on display in the first trailer for Lionsgate’s tale of forbidden love, Mothering Sunday.
Starring Odessa Young (Shirley, The Stand), Olivia Colman (The Father, The Favourite), Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country, The Crown), Sope Dirisu (His House, Gangs of London), and Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, Supernova), Mothering Sunday was adapted from Graham Swift’s novel by Alice Birch, the screenwriter of acclaimed BBC drama Normal People, and directed by Eva Husson (Bang Gang: A Modern Love Story). Check out the trailer below….
On a warm spring day in 1924, house maid and foundling Jane Fairchild (Odessa Young) finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr and Mrs Niven (Colin Firth and Olivia Colman), are out and she has the rare chance to spend an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover, Paul (Josh O’Connor), the boy from the manor house nearby who is Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.
Mothering Sunday lands in UK cinemas on November 19th.
