  • Directed by: Eva Husson
  • Cast: Odessa Young, Josh O'Connor, Olivia Colman, Colin Firth, Sope Dirisu, Glenda Jackson

"Screenwriter Alice Birch (Normal People, Lady Macbeth) and director Eva Husson (Bang Gang, Girls of the Sun) prove the perfect creative duo bringing rich sensuality to this film starting Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor and Colin Firth.

Henley, in the mid-1920s, young maid Jane (Young) works for the Nivens, one of several local ‘grand’ families who have been devastated by the loss of sons in the First World War. Jane is having a secret, passionate affair with Paul (Josh O’Connor), the sole surviving son of the Nivens’ neighbours, and on Mothering Sunday, Jane has plans to bicycle over to Paul’s house while his parents and servants are away, for a secret rendezvous. But Paul is engaged to be married to someone else and Jane has ambitions to be a writer.

Eva Husson and director of photography Jamie Ramsay bring a vibrant physicality to this period setting, creating a substantial tenderness and sense of place."
