A tale as old as time, or at least as old as Shakespeare: star-crossed lovers, bound by passion, pulled apart by religion, culture and a broken jar of peanut butter. Arthur and Vida, young Londoners tumbling headlong into all-consuming love. But Vida’s upper-middle class, Jewish intellectual upbringing clashes with Arthur’s Welsh, working-class roots. Whimsical animated interludes and a soulful folk score add another level of buoyancy to this memorable and deeply relatable romance.

“LOVE IS THICKER THAN WATER gives us the treat of acting that is beautifully on point and a cast of characters that live with you for long after the lights come up. Matchless film-making and story-telling.” Stephen Fry
