Movie Info

Based on the best-selling book by St John Greene, Mum's List is the heart warming true 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.

  • It is managed with honesty, dignity and conviction, and there are very real moments of personal pain.

  • Mum's List director Neill Johnson locks Rafe Spall in a very different version of hell, whose 101 minutes of footage weighed on the perception of this critic as if the amount had also been multiplied by a thousand. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • The scene at a dinner party in which Spall's Singe likens the pain of bereavement to struggling against the sea's undertow will knock you off your feet.

  • It's a tough watch but a powerful one, and beautifully acted not just by Fox and Spall but by William and Matthew Stagg, as their young sons. Well done, boys.

  • Even before the opening credits it is tugging on the heartstrings as if Quasimodo were at the other end, and the fierce pressure on the tear ducts never lets up, which is why I found myself resisting.

  • It's warm to the touch, slightly soft in the middle.
