Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville star in this intimate and sensitively-handled drama about a couple dealing with breast cancer.

Tom (Neeson) and Joan (Manville) are a long-married couple with an easy, happy and loving relationship. Everything ordinary is turned on its head, however, when Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer and the pair must navigate the mundane and frightening new world of exams, diagnoses, hospital bureaucracy and interminable waiting rooms. The course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as the pair face the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might happen in the future...

Subtle, sophisticated and sweet, Ordinary Love is a deceptively simple story about love, survival, and the epic challenges that life throws at each and every one of us.
