Mrs-Ratcliffe's-Revolution

Mrs Ratcliffe’s Revolution

by Assassin Films

Synopsis

Based on a true story, Mrs Ratcliffe’s Revolution is a feel-good comedy that charts the journey of a family from Bingley in Yorkshire, who defect to East Germany.

Here they find a nightmare of rationing, censorship and the most spied upon people in history rather than the Marxist utopia they were expecting. But if they thought getting in was difficult wait till they try to get out.

Reviews

A feel-good culture-clash comedy, this modest British effort earns a lot of goodwill for it’s originality and ability to balance lightweight fun and heavyweight politics.
