Gracie Fields was Britain's darling - the funny, working-class film star whose boundless energy, roguish cheerfulness and ironic songs symbolised the spirit of 1930s England. This film begins at the height of Gracie's fame. In 1939, having suffered a serious illness, Gracie decides to take a break. But then war breaks out and, exhausted, but as enthusiastic as ever, Gracie volunteers to do her duty to her fans and country, by touring France, singing to the troops and raising money for Spitfires. Then, after years of friendships, she marries the Italian Hollywood director Monty Banks. When Italy enters the war, Gracie is forced to choose between loyalty to her husband and loyalty to her country. Starring the internationally renowned Jane Horrocks as the singing, laughing, heart-breaking Gracie Fields, this is a romantic comedy steeped in warm wit, dramatic dilemma-filled emotion and vivacious, irrepressible energy.
