★★★★ “Bursting with heart and charm.” – Movie Review World

★★★★★ “Sheila Hancock delivers an acting masterclass in Edie.” – Culture Fix

Legendary actress Sheila Hancock (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) stars in this award-nominated, warm and engaging film about an elderly woman who sets out to fulfil a lifelong ambition to climb one of Scotland’s most demanding mountains. Striking up a friendship with Jonny (Kevin Gutherie, Dunkirk), a young man who attempts to act as her guide (much to her annoyance), Edie’s adventures are at once funny, frightening, and fulfilling. At its heart is the central relationship between two stubborn characters, who bicker often, but come to rely on and trust each other in ways neither could have expected.

This uplifting crowd-pleaser celebrates inter-generational friendship and encourages you to follow your dreams.
