In a year where the Christmas TV schedules have been packed with ‘specials’ that weren’t special at all it’s very refreshing (and a nice change) to have something as lovely as ‘Ethel and Ernest’ on to watch.

Beautifully animated, it brings to life Raymond Briggs’ graphic novel of the same name. Capturing the life of his parents this charts their struggles, their highs/lows against the changing face of Britain.

The book covers some tough issues, and I was pleased to see that the film did not shy away from these either, but doing so in a dignified and poetic way.

Parents thinking this is going to be like ‘The Snowman’, another adaptation of Briggs’ work should be warned though, this isn’t always child friendly due to the content.

Well done to all those involved in the making of this film. Watch Ethel & Ernest (2016) Online.
