A heartwarming story about living life to the full, with a dazzling all-star cast. Grumpy pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) is reluctantly persuaded by his beloved wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) to join her highly unconventional local choir. When his relationship breaks down with his son James (Christopher Eccleston) it is left to colourful choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) to try and persuade Arthur that it's never too late to embrace life. He embarks on a life-affirming journey of musical self-discovery.
If you like British Films in the style of 'Saving Grace', 'The Quartet' and many others, this is for you. It's about real and ordinary people, warts, faults and all. It is very sad at times but uplifting at others, especially when a tiny glimmer of humour pops up. It makes you think and then apply it to your own life with the losses of loved ones along the way. Overall we felt it gave hope although we are expecting to lose Parents we adore quite soon, and it can show how some estranged relationships of Parents and Children can be partly healed by loss.
