Love is Thicker Than Water

Love is Thicker Than Water

Sparks fly when Arthur, a poor Welsh student, meets Vida, a wealthy Jewish cellist. As the two rush headlong into a relationship, their bond is soon tested when the fates of their two vastly different families converge. Punctuated by quirky animated segments and an energetic soundtrack, this modern day Romeo and Juliet explores the trials and tribulations of a young couple in contemporary London. Johnny Flynn and Lydia Wilson deliver outstanding performances as the star-crossed lovers, alongside a terrific supporting cast.

From the director of Drop Dead Fred, this touching, quirky and tragic film presents a fresh look at how conflicting family ties challenge love.
