Side by Side, 2013.

Directed by Arthur Landon.

Starring Bel Powley, Alfie Field, Sara Stewart, Diana Quick, Richard Lintern and Tom Beard.


Side by Side is the story of the unique bond that exists between a brother and a sister. After a rough couple of years, the pair face spending the rest of their childhood apart resulting in the pair of them running away in search of the only person who can keep their family together.

The first thing that strikes you about Side by Side is that it feels like a story that your parents would read to you when you were a child. An old fashioned tale of two children on an adventure into the unknown – perfect bedtime reading, even if you’re an adult.

The story starts with the older sibling Lauren Buckle being pressured into signing a contract with her agent that’ll set her up »
