The Olive Tree (15)
Writer Paul Laverty brings the same mix of social conscience and human comedy to this gloriously filmed Spanish film as he brought to ’The Angel’s Share’ and to “I, Daniel Blake’. This is a road trip, odd-couple romance and eco-fable set in the Baix Maestrat area of Spain’s Castellan. It is a simple story, told with charm and wit.
