The first trailer has arrived.. and we have to say this is looking pretty special. The distinctive pastel-coloured style of Briggs' original books, so familiar to those who grew up on The Snowman are recreated perfectly. The style of the film itself looks to be very gentle and heart-warming, although we suspect this is also going to pack quite the emotional punch.
The story follows the titular couple as they meet in 1928, and takes them through major events both personal and historical, including the birth of their son (Raymond, of course), the great depression, World War II and beyond, right through to the social upheaval of the 1960's
Ethel & Ernest will be released in UK Cinemas from October 28th 2016 via Vertigo Releasing. Check out the trailer below, and why not let us know what you think in the comments?
