Synopsis

Written by Hanif Kureishi, author of 'Buddha of Suburbia', this family drama tackles the taboo of an older woman falling in love with a much younger man. May (Anne Reid) and Toots (Peter Vaughan), a couple in their sixties, are staying with their grown-up children in London when Toots suffers a heart attack and dies. May returns home to the north of England but, lonely and isolated from her busy metropolitan children, soon decides to move into her son Bobby's London home, much to his wife's annoyance. May feels her life fading into oblivion until she meets thirty-something Darren (Daniel Craig), who is renovating her son's house, and falls passionately in love with him.

Contains strong language, sex references and hard drug use.
