An all-star cast including Josh O'Connor, Olivia Colman, Colin Firth and Odessa Young star in Eva Husson's lush romantic drama.

On a warm spring day in 1924, house maid and foundling Jane Fairchild (Young) finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr and Mrs Niven (Firth and Colman), are out and she has the rare chance to spend an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover, Paul (O’Connor), the boy from the manor house nearby who is Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.

Adapted from Graham Swift's much-lauded 2016 novella, Mothering Sunday is a seductive story exploring the fragility and power of sex, love and the impact it has on a creative female artist.

"A prestige period picture...audiences will likely be seduced by the combination of Brit star power and the unapologetic steaminess of the central relationship." - Wendy Ide, Screen International
