Daisy Ashford: [Voice over] And so, after their joyous marriage, Bernard and Ethel went on their honeymoon where they mated very well, and returned with a son and heir, a nice fat baby called Ignatius Bernhard, and six more children, four boys and three girls, some of which were twins. And Bernard loved Ethel to the bitter end, even as she grew rather a bulgy figure.

One of my favourite films
16 September 2017 | by chall-39184See all my reviews

It is difficult to think of many films with quite so many talented actors. Jim Broadbent, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Simon Russell Beale, Lyndsey Marshal, Anne Reid, Tom Burke - to name but a few. An absolutely delightful film that can be enjoyed as much by adults as by children. Unmissable and wonderfully satirical.
