An extraordinary look at the lives of a middle-aged couple in the midst of the wife’s breast cancer diagnosis. —Bankside Films Joan and Tom have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a life time 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. Just as its title suggests, film Ordinary Love tells a normal, not at all romanticized and thus much more realistic story about a middle-aged married couple, Tom (Liam Neeson) and Joan (Lesley Manville), who has already experienced the tragedy of losing their only child and “learned” how to live with it, now exposed to a new ordeal, the wife being diagnosed with breast cancer. After a favorable surgery, and doctor’s opinion that the cancer was completely removed, nevertheless and despite the husband’s protest, who in need for additional therapy sees contradiction with the success attributed to surgery, chemotherapy is still necessary to eliminate individual malignant cells, possibly spread throughout the body, which could cause relapse of the illness. The film has an open ending, but there is no reason for pessimism: the surgery was successful, the recommended chemotherapy, though truly almost never without extraordinary efforts for the patient, was carried out effectively. Thus, the positive expectations for the continuation of a quality life are well founded.
