Catherine Tate’s iconic character Joannie Taylor AKA Nan hits the big screen as she goes on a wild road trip from London to Ireland with her long-suffering grandson Jamie to make amends with her estranged and dying sister Nell. Through a series of flashbacks, we see the young sisters fall in love with the same handsome GI during World War 2 and how the consequences of this love triangle shaped Nan into the cantankerous old b*****d she is today. Militant vegan arsonists, Australian rugby teams, all-night raves, and crazed cops on motorbikes all make for a proper day out. Hilarious, action-packed, and surprisingly moving, this film is a love letter to outrageous, outspoken old ladies everywhere.

Writer and actor Catherine Tate has worked extensively on stage and screen. Her multi-award-winning BBC series The Catherine Tate Show ran for three seasons and spawned several spin-offs based on her Nan character. She is also well known for playing Donna Noble opposite David Tennant in Doctor Who and appealing in the U.S version of The Office as Nellie Bertram. She can currently be seen in her new series, Hard Cell on Netflix and will return to screens as Donna Noble next year in Doctor Who to coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary.
