First-look trailer released for Northern Irish drama Ordinary Love
23 Sep 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson in 'Ordinary Love'
Following its hugely successful world premiere at TIFF earlier this month, the first-look trailer has been released for Lisa Barros DíSa and Glenn Leyburnís Ordinary Love.

Filmed entirely on location in Northern Ireland with funding from Northern Ireland Screen, Ordinary Love stars Academy Award nominees Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread) and Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List) who portray an everyday couple with an extraordinary love, who must find the humour and grace to face a year of adversity.

Ordinary Love marks the third feature from the directing duo following their critically acclaimed Good Vibrations (2012) and Cherrybomb (2009).

Joan (Manville) and Tom (Neeson) have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a lifetime together and a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour in equal part. When Joan is unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as they are faced with the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might happen if something were to happen to Joan. Ordinary Love is a story about love, survival and the epic questions life throws at each and every one of us.

Ordinary Love was written by award-winning Irish playwright, Owen McCafferty. It is a Canderblinks Films and Out of Orbit production, produced by the BAFTA award-winner and BFI Vision Awardee, Brian J. Falconer for Out of Orbit, David Holmes for Canderblinks Films and Piers Tempest for Tempo Productions.

Ordinary Love has been financed by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funding and Northern Ireland Screen in association with Head Gear Films, Metrol Technology and Kreo Films. Bankside Films is handling international sales.

Executive producers are Natascha Wharton for the BFI, Stephen Kelliher for Bankside Films, Jo Bamford for Tempo Productions, Phil Hunt and Compton Ross for Head Gear Films/Metrol Technology and Mark Huffam.

Ordinary Love releases in Irish cinemas on December 6th.
