The BBC movie is one which will ring home to a lot of us - it's about a couple who entered into lockdown last March.
'Together' is a new movie starring Sharon Horgan and James McAvoy expected later this year. We'll join the husband and wife from March 2020 until the present day, beginning the story as they enter lockdown in the UK.
Billed as a "hilarious and heart-breaking" story, we'll follow the married couple as they, like so many of us over the past year or so, managed to survive the modern-day apocalypse. Playing characters named He and She, they will both re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of lockdown.
Horgan's She is a charity worker, and daughter to an "old socialist mother", while McAvoy's He is self-employed and who has had to furlough his staff.
The whole production was filmed over an incredible 10 days, with a script from Dennis Kelly who worked with Horgan previously on their BBC Three sitcom 'Pulling'. Stephen Daldry, who has worked on all four seasons of 'The Crown' thus far, was in charge of directing.
Speaking about their collaboration, Sharon Horgan said this about 'Together': "I think everyone who got involved in this film had no intention of doing a covid drama but then we read Dennis’ script and changed our minds. We shot this in ten days so it was a beautifully stressful experience.
"Working with Dennis again - and Stephen Daldry and James McAvoy both of whom I’ve admired for years was a joy. But it also felt like we were making something important. And the fact that it feels like news means that the covid death toll, the tragedy of so many lives lost unnecessarily has not been talked about enough."
James McAvoy said of his involvement on the project: "Dennis writes so wittily for these characters and his script had me within the first few pages. When I heard Sharon was involved with Stephen Daldry directing it was a no brainer. It’s a hilarious, heartfelt, entertaining and unconsciously funny exploration of a relationship and a couple facing real tragedy across a year we have all lived through."
There's been no release date set yet for BBC's 'Together', but expect an update later this year when the trailer is released.
