Gracie Fields was the nation's darling. Not only the most popular female entertainer Britain had ever seen but also the highest paid film actress in the world. Her common touch, roguish cheerfulness and ironic songs kept a nation - and the world - smiling. But that was all about to change. Beginning on the cusp of World War II and at the phenomenal peak of her career, this heartbreaking love story tells of Grade's romance with Italian-born Hollywood director, Monty Banks (Tom Hollander) - and its staggering repercussions. Gracie was now a star in her 40s who had sacrificed love and children for her career - but would she ever be prepared to sacrifice her career for love? Would she ever find out what love really meant - or would it be something she'd only ever sing about? Jane Horrocks plays Gracie and sings a stunning repertoire of iconic songs, including "Sally", "Sing As We Go" and "Wish Me Luck" (As You Wave Me Goodbye)."
