‘A rousing British film, simply wonderful!’
Allelujah is a warm, humorous and deeply moving story about surviving old age.
When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back by galvanizing the local community: they invite a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of the hospital’s most distinguished nurse. What could go wrong?!
Based on the popular play by Alan Bennett, Allelujah highlights the value of the NHS. It manages to celebrate the spirit of the elderly patients, whilst paying tribute to the deep humanity of the medical staff battling with limited resources and ever-growing demand.
With a stellar ensemble cast, including Jennifer Saunders, Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi it successfully gives an impassioned defence of the NHS. (1hr 39 mins)
