*** My review is now live ***
I love baking, so for me Lockdown has been a never ending loop of sourdough starters and meringues made from chickpea water. And now we are emerging, we have an actual baking movie to come back to.
Here’s the synopsis:
Determined to fulfil her late mother’s dream of opening a bakery in charming Notting Hill, 19-year-old Clarissa enlists the help of her mother’s best friend Isabella and her eccentric estranged grandmother Mimi. These three generations of women will need to overcome grief, doubts and differences to honour the memory of their beloved Sarah while embarking on a journey to establish a London bakery filled with love, hope and colourful pastries from all over the world.
I know, it sounds a little twee but so are madeleines and I can eat five of those in one go.
Love Sarah is directed by Liza Schroeder and stars Celia Imrie, Shannon Tarbet, Shelley Conn, Rupert Penry Jones and Bill Paterson and – as Sarah – Great British Bake-Off winner Candice Brown.
It’s out, in cinemas only, on 10 July.
