Song for Mar­ion

Pre­pare for tears with this ten­der tale

TV Times - - Film Guide -

BBC2 10.30pm - 12m’t

A warm-hearted com­edy-drama about love and grief, this tear­jerker stars screen icons Ter­ence Stamp and Vanessa Red­grave as an el­derly cou­ple. They’re glo­ri­ous to­gether – as the grumpy Arthur and his out­go­ing, ter­mi­nally-ill wife Mar­ion, whose in­volve­ment in the lo­cal choir drives the story. Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston as their son and Gemma Arter­ton as the cheery choir­mas­ter bring depth, while all the mu­si­cal num­bers add colour. If you don’t blub at least twice you have a heart of stone.

Dir: Paul An­drew Wil­liams 2012, PG, 90min

In good voice: Red­grave takes the mic
