It's a very slow-paced, conflict-free SliceOfLife film, that makes use of incredible acting, natural dialogue, wonderful writing and subtly dark humour to carry the itself.

!!This work provides examples of:

* AndStarring: Imelda Staunton get this, although she only appears for about five minutes in the beginning.
* BlackSheep: Ronnie's estranged son.
* BottleFairy: Mary
* ChristmasCake: Mary.
* CoolOldGuy / CoolOldLady: Why, the main couple.
* ExpospeakGag: Tom, Gerri, Joe and Katie talking about Tom's work.
* {{Foil}}: Mary's single, and her desperate attempts at joy is a harsh contrast to Tom and Gerri's easy happy life.
* GenkiGirl: Katie, to the nth degree.
* HappilyMarried: Tom and Gerri, very much so.
* TheQuietOne: Ronnie
* SliceOfLife
