THE MORE YOU IGNORE ME (2017)
A feature film written by Jo Brand based on her best selling book of the same title starring Sheridan Smith, Mark Addy, Sally Phillips, Ricky Tomlinson, Sheila Hancock, Tom Davis & Ella Hunt is currently in post-production.
A heart-warming universal comedy that focuses on the life of an unusual family in rural England; it addresses mental health issues and their impact on the family – in a very real, sometimes stark, but also funny and affirming way.
Written by Jo Brand, using all the insight gained during her years as a psychiatric health worker, it pulls no punches addressing the issues and the sometimes-comic absurdities that can surround mental health as well as the collateral damage suffered by loved ones. But the film will strongly assert that there can be happiness in day-to-day life and positive outcomes.
