Lisa Barros D’sa and Glenn Lyburn talk about the tone they chose for a film about a serious issue, that is unfortunately common. But they managed to give us a positive and never manipulative film. They tell us how.

Ordinary Love: As the Christmas decorations go up, we quickly get a sense of Joan and Tom’s bantering relationship; witty and teasing, they’re a couple who can finish each other’s sentences. When Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer, Tom is there to support and we follow as they navigate the mundane and frightening new world of exams, diagnoses, and waiting rooms. a warm and affecting drama.
