Ethel & Ernest


“Ethel & Ernest” by Roger Mainwood is a story of two ordinary Londoners living together through the extraordinary times. In 1928, Ethel, working as a lady’s maid, meets Ernest, a milk-man with a head full of socialist ideals and faith in progress and technology. The young couple gets married and moves to the outskirts of London, where they raise their only son, Raymond.

Ethel & Ernest - kadr z filmu

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.
