Have your say

Ronan Keating from Boyzone, who recently provided the singing voice of Postman Pat, makes his feature film acting debut in this musical based on Joanna Weinberg’s one-woman stage show, which is directed for the big screen by Mark Lamprell.

While her husband James (Keating) is travelling around the world on a one-man crusade to save the whales, domestic goddess Elspeth Dickens (Laura Michelle Kelly) is left at home to take care of their mischievous twin boys.

She installs a webcam in the kitchen so James can see the family on his travels and listen to her singing to the children from the kitchen sink.

These suburban lullabies transform Elspeth into a cyber-celebrity and she is offered the chance of a lifetime to shake off the shackles of motherhood and seek her fortune in the spotlight.

Forced to choose between her family and fame, Elspeth discovers that she can’t have her cake and eat it... without choking.
