The cream of British acting comes to the fore in Song for Marion (PG) at the Reel this week.

The film tells the heart-warming story of a loving marriage between grumpy pensioner Arthur, played by Terence Stamp, and ever-cheerful but terminally-ill Marion, played by Vanessa Redgrave.

The film is directed by Paul Andrew Williams, who made the violent thriller London to Brighton and a few other thrillers before making a complete U-turn with this very British story.

Critics have likened it to a montage of other British films such as Quartet, Brassed Off, Calendar Girls and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

The film also stars Gemma Arterton and Christopher Eccleston.
