In their tiny house in a Yorkshire mining town, God-fearing and hardworking Mr and Mrs Shaw welcome their sons home to celebrate the couple's 40th wedding anniversary. But with each son's arrival, more and more of the Shaw's model blue collar family facade begins to chip away. As father, mother, and brothers try to hide the truth from themselves and each other, the eldest son tears into the Shaw family's carefully maintained fictions with animal fury and all-too-human bitterness. Utilising the same brilliant cast as In Celebration's original highly acclaimed Royal Court Theatre run, director Lindsay Anderson re-imagines his stage triumph into a riveting cinematic experience.
