Forty years of change, one enduring love.

Based on the award-winning book by acclaimed British author and illustrator Raymond Briggs, this beautifully hand-drawn, animated feature film tells the true story of Raymond's own parents - Ethel and Ernest - two ordinary Londoners living through a period of extraordinary events and immense social change.

Heart-warming, humorous and bittersweet, the film follows the lives of lady's maid Ethel and milkman Ernest from their first chance meeting in 1928, through the birth of their son Raymond in 1934, to their deaths, within months of each other, in 1971.

From the socially stratified 1920s to the moon landing of 1969, the film depicts, through Ethel and Ernest's eyes, the most defining moments of the 20th Century: the darkness of the Great Depression, the build up to World War II, the trials of the war years, the euphoria of VE Day and the emergence of a generation from post war austerity to the cultural enlightenment of the 1960s.

A multi-generational team of top British talent breathes life into the characters headed up by Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent and Golden Globe winner Brenda Blethyn in the title roles and Olivier Award winner Luke Treadaway as Raymond. They are joined by leading actors Virginia McKenna, June Brown, Pam Ferris, Simon Day and Roger Allam, with young actor Harry Collett as young Raymond.

Echoing the lives and concerns of the London working classes through momentous social and political change, Ethel & Ernest, released on DVD by Universal Pictures (UK) on 2nd January 2017, is a heartfelt and affectionate tribute to an ordinary couple and an extraordinary generation.
