The perfect pick-me-up tonic! An uplifting film that celebrates human kindness.
Adapted by Rachael Joyce, from her highly acclaimed Booker longlisted novel, ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’ is a story about the power of hope, everyday joys and human connection.
It tells the story of Harold and Maureen, a retired couple living a life of quiet boredom and desperation in Devon. Harold is an ordinary man who has passed through life, living on the side lines. He has little purpose in life until one day he learns that an old friend is dying. After writing a rather stiff sympathy letter, he leaves home to post it. Unfortunately he misses the last post and walks on to try and find another post box. Before he knows it Harold decides to deliver the letter in person… 450 miles away to Berwick upon Tweed…..and just keeps walking!
The cinematography is outstanding as is the cast, including Penelope Wilton and Jim Broadbent who is ‘a wonder’ as Harold. Together they portray a story full of fleeting moments and what-ifs, highlighting the impact that small actions can have on the people we come across.
Harold Fry is a story of rediscovery and transformation. A heart-warming, thought-provoking film that will make you want to be a better person. It reminds us that we are all never too old to take a chance and that kindness is less rare than we think! (1hr 48mins)
