‘Another Mother’s Son’ DVD Review

Stars: Jenny Seagrove, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington, Ronan Keating, Julian Kostov | Written by Jenny Lecoat | Directed by Christopher Menaul

When we see World War 2 movies based on the British experience, normally we witness the events of the Blitz and see the hardship people went through. Another Mother’s Son takes us to Nazi occupied Jersey and the true story of a mother, and a Polish escaped prisoner of war.

Another Mother’s Son is the story of Louisa Gould (Jenny Seagrove), who when called upon to hide a Russia prisoner of war who has escaped, agrees to let him into her house. Calling him Bill (Julian Kostov) she looks after him, and tries to give him some normality back into his life, while all the time hiding him from not only the enemy in uniform, but also those closer to home.

The story presented in Another Mother’s Son is

Ahead of its home-entertainment release this July, we’ve got an exclusive trailer for the World War II drama Another Mother’s Son, which stars Jenny Seagrove, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington, and Julian Kostov. Watch it here, courtesy of Signature Entertainment

Another Mother’S Son tells the true story of Louisa Gould, a largely unsung heroine of the Second World War. Under the rule of history’s most evil regime, and abandoned by Churchill on the brink of the war, The Channel Islanders were the first to experience life under the Third Reich. Louisa Gould (Jenny Seagrove), a shop keeper charged with delivering the dwindling rations to her undernourished community, learns that one of her sons has been killed in battle. At the same time a young Russian Pow escapes from the German prison camp, and Louisa feels compelled to look after him.

Another Mother's Son review – moving drama on a forgotten occupation

Jenny Seagrove excels in this true-life tale of a mother who hides a fugitive Russian in the Channel Islands during the second world war

At first, there is a bit of a familiar taste to this true-life wartime tale. But it becomes something tougher. The film is, moreover, an interesting reminder of something that the British prefer to overlook assomething it doesn’t quite fit into the Churchillian narrative of never surrendering: the Nazi occupation of British territory – the Channel Islands. It wasn’t just the French who suffered the misery of occupation, and the sordid nightmare of people pursuing petty grudges with anonymous letters to the Nazi authorities. Jenny Seagrove gives a fierce and capable performance as Louisa Gould, a Jersey woman who hid a fugitive Russian slave-worker, nicknamed Bill (Julian Kostov). John Hannah, Nicholas Farrell and – unexpectedly – Ronan Keating take supporting roles as islanders. The film persuasively suggests

Another Mother’s Son Review

Author: Stefan Pape

The majority of films that linger over the horrors of the Second World War tend to focus on the soldiers, the young men who left home to serve their country, and risk their lives on a daily basis. It’s somewhat more infrequent to delve into the lives of those back at home, struggling to get by, constantly afraid their loved ones will be killed, while also vying to survive back on home soil. It’s here Christopher Menaul’s profound drama Another Mother’s Son is set, based on the true story of Louisa Gould.

Set on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey, Gould (Jenny Seagrove) runs the local grocery store, selling rationed food to her neighbours. It’s those very customers that she puts her faith in, as she agrees to secretly take in a Russian prisoner of war, who she affectionately nicknames Bill (Julian Kostov

World War II drama Another Mother’s Son gets a poster and trailer

Ahead of its UK release next month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for director Christopher Menaul’s upcoming WWII drama Another Mother’s Son which stars Jenny Seagrove, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington, and Julian Kostov; take a look below…

Another Mother’s Son tells the true story of Louisa Gould, a largely unsung heroine of the Second World War. Under the rule of history’s most evil regime, and abandoned by Churchill on the brink of the war, The Channel Islanders were the first to experience life under the Third Reich. Jersey became something of a prison island, where captured Pow’s (particularly from Russia) were bought and forced to build an Atlantic Wall, a huge concrete fortification to defend the islands from British counter attack. British citizens who were not born on the island were sent to Germany.

The Great British Bake Off 2016, episode four – as it happened

The BBC lost Bake Off this week, so things can only get batter. Or can they?

9.02pm BST

Well that was a rollercoaster, as Ronan Keating might weakly describe it. It’s been a hard few days; but it is batter week since we shall see each other again, so stay strong. Thanks for all your comments! They are very entertaining and quite distracting while I’m trying to work.

If you need practical advice on how to process the news, don’t come to me because I’m useless. But I am available for pictures of goats and silly jokes. Come say hi on twitter or even Insta which is how the kids say it.

When Animals Dream: how werewolf films explore growing pains

Adolescent agony meets anaesthetised acting in this po-faced example of a familiar teen horror trope

Creeping on to DVD and streaming platforms almost exactly two years after its premiere at the 2014 Cannes film festival, When Animals Dream sets out its stall at a languid pace in keeping with a delay of that length. In a small Danish fishing village of Agger, the film finds 16-year-old Marie on the cusp of adulthood, having all but outgrown the home she shares with her stoic father and mysteriously catatonic mother. After finding a job at a fish-processing facility and a boyfriend who looks like Ronan Keating, Marie seems to have amassed all the key hallmarks of adulthood, and that’s to say nothing of the thick coat of hair growing all over her body.

Though its Nordic origins and sombre tone have seen When Animals Dream lazily compared to Let The Right One In,

Eva Green: ‘I don’t want to be put in a box marked Weird Witch’

The star of gothic fantasy Penny Dreadful talks about the risks – and pleasures – of acting on the dark side

Only very beautiful women and, perhaps, motorcycle couriers can get away with leather trousers. Detective Saga Norén in The Bridge? Just about. Ronan Keating? Not so much.

These thoughts occur as I’m introduced to Eva Green at an apparently select members’ club in the gothic revival St Pancras Renaissance hotel in London. She’s wearing black boots, black leather trousers, tailored black singlet, has long, dyed-black hair and lots of black eye makeup.

London — Singer Ronan Keating has joined the cast of U.K. period drama “Another Mother’s Son,” whose cast includes Jenny Seagrove, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington, Peter Wight and Susan Hampshire.

Step aside Flockstars - new reality show Battlechefs sees celebs compete in cooking at sea

In a year that's already seen BBQ Champ, Flockstars and (sort of) Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank, there's now another contender for most Partridge-esque reality show.

Watch has commissioned Battlechefs, which follows celebrities competing in a cruise ship kitchen to impress Marco Pierre White.

12 bizarre TV shows that weren't invented by Alan Partridge - honest

Ten amateur celebrity chefs - including Blur's Alex James, Keith Duffy from Boyzone and EastEnders' John Partridge - will take on the challenge.

They will take it in turns to command the kitchen, cooking for the ship's captain and VIP guests.

There will be two separate cruises, with five stars competing on each, and the show will also explore the locations at which the ships stop, particularly the food and cooking techniques they offer.

The 36-year-old Italian professional dancer tied the knot in Co Monaghan's Castle Leslie, with guests including former Strictly partners Louisa Lytton, Dani Harmer and Edwina Currie, and ex-I'm a Celebrity stars David Emanuel, Matthew Wright and Rebecca Adlington.

Speaking about seeing his bride for the first time, an emotional Simone enthused to Hello: "I felt incredibly emotional and was worried I wouldn't keep it together. I couldn't look back at Susan as she walked up the aisle because I was afraid I would dissolve into tears.

"She looked so beautiful, really breathtaking."

The couple - who have two young children together - told the publication that their first dance was to Ronan Keating's 'This I Promise You', with Simone adding that Susan suggested he perform it with one of his Strictly ex-partners.
