Ordinary Love (12A)
Joan and Tom are a long-married couple, with their set habits, cozy bickering, and assumption of a long walk together into the sunset. When Joan discovers a lump in her breast, it soon becomes clear that cancer will radically change everything. As she enters the cold, uncertain process of medical treatment, their habits are ruptured, and that cozy bickering explodes to reveal the long-buried truths of their marriage. Manville's Joan is a mature woman who has made her accommodations with life, but is unprepared to face this potentially terminal illness. Neeson plays Tom as a man more comfortable showing rather than speaking his love. Their big date during her treatment, and one simple scene where Tom cuts Joan's hair, illuminate the depth of love that unites this couple, even as they face the ultimate test.
