"Absolutely Marvellous" is a fly-on-the-wall, Osbournes-style film following Marvel Opara, the eccentric and partially sighted mother of heavyweight boxing champion Joe Joyce and her family over several months. As with most other fly-on-the-wall documentaries, our fascination doesn't really lie in the action or events but stems from that more basic animal instinct, curiosity, the desire to take a look behind somebody else's closed doors - to see how celebrities and their loved ones live. In this case, what's it like living with a disability which doesn't allow you to see your world famous son box in the ring?
