Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 10.34.32Having both made their fair share of profound, more sincere features, acting duo Emma Thompson and Celia Imrie are not offering something a little lighter with their latest offering The Love Punch – and we had the great pleasure of sitting down with the pair to discuss their work on the Joel Hopkins project.

As Thompson claims this to be one of the most fun sets she has ever worked on, it’s evident to see in the picture, as the stars, alongside Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Spall are evidently having the time of their lives, and it’s a sentiment that extends to the viewer. So we got on the subject of happiness in cinema, and why films these days aren’t quite as unashamedly joyous as those from the 50s. The pair also discuss working in the South of France, and Thompson very nearly spills the beans on her worst ever holiday.

The Love Punch is out on April 18th.
