Here’s the official track list of the soundtrack of Ethel and Ernest, the upcoming British hand drawn animated drama movie written and directed by Roger Mainwood based on the graphic novel by Raymon Briggs and featuring the voices of Jim Broadbent, Brenda Blethyn, and Luke Treadaway:
Ernest and Ethel meet in 1928. In short order they are married, holders of a mortgage, and parents of a boy–solid members of the English working class experiencing the Depression, World War II, postwar prosperity and cultural upheaval.
