  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database

At the age of 84, Edie (Sheila Hancock) is finally free of the ties that bound her to an invalid and domineering husband – and it is the moment to start making up for lost time.

Her goal is to climb a mountain, Suilven, in the Scottish Highlands. Local guide Jonny (Kevin Guthrie - Dunkirk) is the man to help her do it. Movie Review World said that the relationship between the two is the key to the movie’s success and rates it as ‘one of the most tender on screen friendships of the year’.

Sheila Hancock delivers the performance of a lifetime, she's an absolute legend, who at 84 offers a strong reminder that age is but a number. Her delivery of humour, emotion and duress is impeccable.
