Plot Summary

In 1918, with her husband working in the War office - and subsequently leaving the family - devoted mother Annie Lee takes her step-daughters and her own children to live in the idyllic Gloucestershire countryside, the youngest being the sickly Laurie, known as Loll. Here they witness two feuding matrons, Granny Trill and Granny Wallon and shelter a young army deserter hiding in the woods until his capture. At school Loll and his classmates are terrorized by the formidable teacher Crabby until hulking Spadge Hopkins literally puts her in her place. Far more important to Loll's schooldays are the captivating Burdock sisters, Jo and Rosie, and, as he grows into adolescence and beyond, eventually leaving home to seek his fortune, he samples the delights of cider with Rosie.

Trivia Laurie Lee on writing Cider with Rosie: "I shut myself up two years in the process of writing it. I was down there on the edge of the Fulham Road (London) with blinds drawn. Two solid years, my friends never saw me. I wrote it three times. I sort of carved it about and chopped it down and refined it, yes there was a lot of sweat to it." (Source: 1959 BBC interview) See more »
Goofs The cycle that Laurie piggybacks on with his mother has a very modern brake lever, probably from a mountain bike, and cable brakes. At the time the film is set, the brakes would most likely have been connected to the levers by rods. See more »
Quotes [Annie is upstairs nursing her new-borm baby. Jack goes up to see her]
Annie Lee: Hello, darling. How is everyone?
Young Jack: Oh, all right.
Annie Lee: You behaving yourself?
Young Jack: I've not broken nothin'.
Annie Lee: Good boy. What's everybody up to?
Young Jack: Marj is out in the yard, Doth's peeling spuds.
Annie Lee: What about the others?
Young Jack: Frances is cleaning her trolley and Phyl is sitting on the steps.
Annie Lee: What about our Lol?
Young Jack: [unemotionally, as if it were perfectly normal] Lol is dead. Turned yellow. Mrs Moores is laying him out.
[Annie looks uncomprehending then rushes downstairs in a panic]
