Watch: Cider with Rosie 2015 123movies, Full Movie Online – In 1918, with her husband working in the War office – and subsequently leaving the family – devoted mother Annie Lee takes her step-daughters and her own children to live in the idyllic Gloucestershire countryside, the youngest being the sickly Laurie, known as Loll. Here they witness two feuding matrons, Granny Trill and Granny Wallon and shelter a young army deserter hiding in the woods until his capture. At school Loll and his classmates are terrorized by the formidable teacher Crabby until hulking Spadge Hopkins literally puts her in her place. Far more important to Loll’s schooldays are the captivating Burdock sisters, Jo and Rosie, and, as he grows into adolescence and beyond, eventually leaving home to seek his fortune, he samples the delights of cider with Rosie..
Plot: A semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story set in the Cotswolds during and immediately after the First World War.

Beautiful scenery – shame about the story & acting! Avoid!
Having lived in Cheltenham & explored the Cotswolds a lot, we were looking forward to this, but what a waste of time! If my hadn’t been suffering with flu, we would have switched off. (It was all she could concentrate on.)
Glorious filming of the countryside. 1 point. Samantha Morton was very good. 1 pt. Tim Spall’s accent & voiceover were very good too. 1 pt. Acting overall – terrible! Story is so inconsequential as to be worthy of no more than a 5 minute film. Avoid!
A slow, well meaning drama.
I’ll try to submit a balanced review, having read through the other reviews submitted here I can see where both are coming from. Post first world War and life was slowly returning to normal, many families were left with no fathers, and life was tough. The story focuses on young Loll, seeing his transformation from a child into a young adult. The best element was Samantha Morton, she gave a terribly sweet, caring and sincere characterisation of Loll’s mum Annie. She did well by her children, and remained desperate for the return of her absent husband. The acting was a little school play at times, but I’ll applaud young Georgie Smith. It is a little slow in parts, but having read the book several times it was very much intended. I’d imagine it will be the feature of many a GCSE pupils project for years to come.
