Side by Side

Side by Side


Facing the rest of their already tenuous childhood apart, Harvey is given a lifeline and runs away in search of their estranged Grandfather, their last remaining relative and potentially only person who can keep their family together. Lauren, having made some rash decisions without consulting her brother, has no choice but to follow.

Heavily influenced by classic British children’s literature and shot against the backdrop of some of the country’s most breathtaking landscapes, this is a rare and genuinely heartfelt tale about the real magic of two siblings finding themselves through simply being with each other.

Dove Review

Lauren takes an unplanned adventure when her younger brother, Harvey, runs away on a journey to Scotland to find their long-lost grandfather. While on their trip they discover a lot about each other and their feelings about life, things neither one of them understood about the other before.

The film has an English flare with beautiful scenery and accents that make it intriguing. We award this movie the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12+.
