VOD Release: Ordinary Love

May 6, 2020

By John Corrado

Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville deliver a pair of moving performances in Ordinary Love, a quiet, emotionally raw drama that charts the ups and downs of a husband and wife in Ireland dealing with her breast cancer diagnosis.

The film, which had its world premiere at TIFF last year and enjoyed a limited run in theatres back in February, is being released for rent and purchase this week on a variety of VOD platforms, including iTunes.

When I reviewed Ordinary Love back in February, I praised the performances and concluded my review by saying that this is “ultimately a film about the importance of time, and about the importance of spending quiet and, yes, ordinary moments with the ones you love.”

This obviously takes on deeper meaning now in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that has forced us to stay at home, something that I couldn’t have foreseen when I wrote my review. While it is a tough film to watch at times, I would recommend watching Ordinary Love at home if you are looking for a draining but emotionally cathartic experience. You can read my full review of the film right here.

Film Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)

Release Date: February 21st, 2020 (Theatrical); May 5th, 2020 (VOD)
