Edie

Cinema

Directed by Simon Hunter | 2017 | UK | Starring Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan| 102mins | Certificate TBC

Faced with the prospect of life in a retirement home, an 83-year-old woman (Sheila Hancock) sets off to rekindle her fond memories of childhood by heading to Scotland to climb a mountain.

Edith Moore (Edie) is a bitter, gruff woman in her eighties. In the months following her husband George’s death, Edie’s strained relationship with her daughter Nancy begins to worsen. The question over Edie’s future looms large; while Edie tries hard to convince Nancy she can manage fine by herself, Nancy is making plans for her mother to move to a retirement home.

Edie feels like it is the beginning of the end. It seems she will die with all the regrets of her past intact and one regret haunts her most of all. When Edie was married, her father planned a climbing trip for them in the Scottish Highlands. Edie yearned to go, but her husband George, a difficult and controlling man, made her stay at home. Nearly thirty years later, Edie decides to make the trip herself alone.

Sheila Hancock is fantastic in a rare leading role, and she is given strong support from Kevin Guthrie (Sunset Song) as her kindly young guide.
