Finding Your Feet
DIRECTOR Richard Loncraine
CAST Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley
After discovering her husband of 40 years has been having an affair, a woman seeks a new lease of life by moving in with her estranged sister in this heartwarming comedy.
When middle-class, judgemental snob Sandra (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of 40 years has been having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged sister Bif (Celia Imrie). Sandra finds it hard to adapt to the outspoken, serial-dating, free-spirited Bif and the inner-city council estate where she lives. But perhaps a different perspective is exactly what Sandra needs. A highly entertaining British comedy with a fabulous cast.
(2017 UK 111 mins)
The humour and sadness co-exist agreeably, Staunton invests every line of dialogue with integrity and her character’s romance with Spall’s Charlie unfolds in a way that’s endearingly, and credibly, cautious. The lessons loom a little large, while a jaunt to Italy feels outrageously unnecessary and ultimately bizarre. Sometimes it’s hard not to cringe at their antics but the joie de vivre of these convention-defying pensioners is ultimately irresistible. It’s a familiar blend, with just a dash of daring.
