Uncompromising look at differences between couples' backgrounds
21 April 2019 | by ScoobySnacks66See all my reviews

At times difficult to watch but a mostly fascinating look at the challenges couples share when they come from differing socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Johnny Flynn and Lydia Wilson are a quirky couple living in London who have a mostly annoying relationship that often comes off as mean spirited and passive aggressive in their stubborn inability to give-in to the power struggle that results from her wealth and his working-class background. Common class tropes are explored as they consider the possibility of marriage between one another and ultimately discover that the challenges of marriage to each another brings the additional complications of being married to their in-laws.
