Babs (2017)

2017 | UK | Tony Jordan | ★★★★

Starring Samantha Spiro and Jaime Winstone, Tony Jordan's witty and moving Babs is an intimate yet hugely ambitious, formally bold Barbara Windsor biopic, featuring five Barbaras, three Ronnies, and a daddy-shaped patch of Wild Strawberries.


"Preparing to perform in the theatre one cold evening in 1993, Babs takes us on a journey of all the people and events that have shaped her life and career: taking us through 50 years from 1943 to 1993, she contemplates her lonely childhood and WWII evacuation, her complicated relationship with her father, her doomed marriage to Ronnie Knight, capturing the attention of Joan Littlewood and becoming the blonde bombshell in the Carry On films."
