True love. At first you have eyes only for each other…but before long, both your families are watching you, too. This sparkling British comedy follows a May-December romance between free spirit Lauren (Eve Myles, Torchwood, Little Dorrit) and young-at-heart divorced grandfather Ed (Anthony Head, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dancing on the Edge).

The age gap isn’t Lauren and Ed’s only challenge. They face the disapproval of Lauren’s parents, who are practically Ed’s contemporaries, and her skeptical older sister, who’s got a chaotic family of her own. On the other side, they endure Ed’s down-on-his-luck, live-in brother; his irresponsible grandson; and most vexing of all, his narcissistic, delusional ex-wife (Lindsay Duncan, Rome), who has moved into the house next door and plots to win her “Eddie Bear” back. With sharp writing and impeccable comic performances, You, Me & Them takes a lighthearted look at the merger of two complex, opinionated, and meddlesome families.
