Written by and starring Ayub Khan Din (My Beautiful Laundrette, East is East) alongside multi-award winning Jane Horrocks (Sunshine on Leith, Little Voice, Life is Sweet, Absolutely Fabulous). An hilarious modern classic about growing up in multiracial England. Pakistani chip-shop owner George Khan (Ayub Khan Din) is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970s Salford. Household tension reaches breaking point as their long-suffering English mother, Ella (Jane Horrocks), gets caught in the cross fire - her loyalties divided between her marriage and the free will of her children. ★ ★ ★ ★ 'Fierce, funny, affecting.
