Grow Your Own
In the noble spirit of Ealing Studios in their 1940s and 50s heyday, this apparently gentle comedy about a year in the life of a Liverpool allotment also has a serious side.
Town residents are outraged when a refugee family is given space on their allotments to help rehabilitate a traumatised father - but both groups unite in a common cause when a mobile phone company plans to build a mast in the area. With its mix of broad humour, keen social comment and moments of truly affecting emotion, there's clearly a message here about the state of race relations in Britain today.
Comedy drama, starring Benedict Wong, Philip Jackson, Omid Djalili and Olivia Colman.
