The Yanks Are Coming! A World War II love story set in Northern Ireland

Hattie Morahan (SENSE AND SENSIBILITY) stars as Englishwoman Rose Coyne, raising her daughter Emma and son Francis in Northern Ireland during World War II.

Owen McDonnell (AN KLONDIKE) is her loving husband Michael, a Northern Irishman who realizes he never lived up to her dreams. Aaron Staton (MAD MEN) is Captain Dreyfuss, the honorable American officer who upends her life.

Shot on the stunningly beautiful Ards Peninsula in Northern Ireland, MY MOTHER AND OTHER STRANGERS portrays the culture clash when a U.S. bomber base is established near the fictional village of Moybeg in 1943, bringing hundreds of gum-chewing, swing-band-listening American airmen to a remote Ulster farming community, with its winsome women and stolid workingmen.
