Ethel & Ernest + Extended Intro

Based on the award-winning book by acclaimed British author and illustrator Raymond Briggs, this hand-drawn animated feature film is an intimate, engaging and affectionate depiction of the life and times of his parents. The film follows Ethel and Ernest, two ordinary Londoners, from their first meeting in the 1920s, through the tumultuous events of the 20th century, from The Depression and World War 2, to post-war prosperity and the swinging 60s.
