The More You Ignore Me is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 8 March, presented by Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee.
The More You Ignore Me is a 2018 British comedy written by and starring Jo Brand. Directed by Keith English, it also stars Sheridan Smith, Sheila Hancock and Ricky Tomlinson.
Based on Jo Brand’s critically acclaimed novel of the same name, The More You Ignore Me is a warm, comedy drama focusing on the life of an unconventional family in 1980s rural England.
The film focuses on Gina (Sheridan Smith), a young mother, whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health.
Things deteriorate when she develops an obsession with the local weatherman, which leads to an admission to the nearby psychiatric hospital.
Over the years, as she grows up, her daughter Alice (Ella Hunt) struggles to relate to her heavily medicated mum, and causes chaos when she comes up with a plan to reconnect with her, which divides the family forever and leads to a moving climax.
Set to the songs of The Smiths, The More You Ignore Me provides a sometimes stark, yet comical insight into life within this quirky household, whilst addressing mental health issues and their impact on the family.
The More You Ignore Me has a 15 rating. No one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in a cinema.
