Ordinary Love

USA 2020 | 92 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

Joan and Tom have been married for many years. An everyday couple with a remarkable love, there is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a lifetime together. When Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their enduring devotion, as they must find the humor and grace to triumph over a year of adversity.


"As quiet and thoughtfully composed as a Dutch master's painting, Ordinary Love uses clean lines and well observed tiny details to build up a deeply moving, nuanced portrait of a marriage under strain after a cancer diagnosis" - Hollywood Reporter

"An achingly intimate portrait of a marriage weathering a storm ... what shines is the combination of Owen McCafferty’s stingingly honest screenplay and the two lovely, emotionally textured central performances" - Screen Daily

"Directed with wit, subtlety and great emotional honesty by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, it’s a singular story with universal appeal – striking a very personal chord with some viewers while finding common ground with the widest possible audience" - The Observer
