Mum’s List interview: Emilia Fox and screenwriter and director Niall Johnson talk about the new film based on the heartbreaking bestseller.
If there’s one film you see in cinemas this weekend, make sure it’s Mum’s List. It is a stunning film that is emotionally charged throughout, and features superb performances from its cast, particularly Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox, as well as a deep, heartbreaking screenplay by Niall Johnson, who also directs.
Adapted from the autobiographical, bestselling book of the same name by St John Greene (Singe), the British drama focusses on a couple, Singe (Rafe Spall) and Kate (Emilia Fox) from North Somerset in the south west of England, whose lives are turned upside down when Kate is diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. The film charts how the family cope with Kate’s terminal illness and the list she creates as a guide for her family to carry on her absence.
Earlier today, we caught up with filmmaker Johnson and star Emilia Fox to talk about this amazing new film. Catch the interview below, and our extremely positive review of the film over here.
Mum’s List is released in UK cinemas from Friday 25th November, 2016.
