The New Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox film – Mum’s List

*sponsored post


I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love a good tear-jerker of a film. When I watch a film I want it to make me feel something, to make me connect with it and to care about the characters within it. I suspect the new film being released this month, Mum’s List, is going to be one of those films that fulfills all of that criteria.


Mum's List Film Still


Mum’s List is a beautiful and heart-warming film, which tells the real life story of Singe and Kate. A couple from North Somerset, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer.


Over her last few months, she created her list: writing down her thoughts and memories to help the man she loved create the best life possible for him and their two sons, after she was gone. I can not even imagine how it would feel to know that you are going to die and not see your children grow up.


I’d like to think that I would have Kate’s strength if I was in the same situation. I think Mum’s List will be a real rollercoaster of emotions to watch, with highs and lows. Just like real life.


Mum's List film
Written and directed by Niall Johnson (‘White Noise’; ‘Keeping Mum’), ‘Mum’s List’ stars Rafe Spall(One Day, Prometheus, Life of Pi), Emilia Fox (Silent Witness, The Pianist, Merlin) and Elaine Cassidy. It is produced by Nick Hamson (‘Premonition’; ‘St George’s Day’) and Studio Soho Films together with executive producers Gareth Jones, Chris Wood, Niall Johnson and Sarah Weatherstone.


The book Mum’s List was published in the UK by Penguin Books in 2012 and entered the UK Amazon charts at No 1, selling over 100,000 copies in just 2 months and quickly became a global success. The film will hit the big screen in the UK on November 25th 2016, and I am definitely planning to watch it.


The trailer below will give you a better taste of the film than I ever could. If you want to keep up with more news about the film or just read more, you can visit the following places;





Don’t forget it’s in cinemas from 25th November 2016!

    That sounds like it will be a tearjerker of a film – how awful it must be to be in that position and know that you won’t get to see your children grow up.

      It really must be, films like this hit me a lot harder since I had the boys. I’m pretty sure it has several highs in the film too, can’t wait to watch it and now I want to read the book too!

    Oh wow, it sounds like a real tearjerker. I just watched the trailer. It’s the sort of thing I’d have to watch with someone other than my husband as he would say it was a chick flick and refuse to watch it!
