Mum’s List DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Based on the best-selling book by St John Greene, Mum’s List tells the story of one mother’s relationship with her sons and her battle with cancer. Starring Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox, the adaptation is a heart-breaking look at the never ending love for one family.

When Fox’s character Kate, is told that she has incurable cancer, she creates a list for her two sons with her wishes for the two of them on. Upon her sad death, the family work to complete all of the wishes she left on Post-It notes and in letters.

Directed by Niall Johnson, the creator has made a film that touches every emotion that the audience has. There are moments where you heart swells with happiness and then breaks because of the horrible consequences the illness causes for the family.

From harrowing moments in hospitals to Spall’s widow figure having to deal with telling his sons about their mother’s death, there isn’t a moment that you will not be thinking about for a long time after watching the film.

A key aspect that makes the film so remember able is the score by Amelia Warner. Every small detail has been thought of and the real agony and heartbreak that the family goes through is tied to each chord of the score music.

When placed together, the acting, music and script are all incredible and will stay with the audience for a long time to come. This British film is going to be one you want tissues for lovelies. Maybe even a few boxes.

Overall the film deserves this...

4 Stars
