Storyline

Recently widowed Celia Dawson tells her astonished headmistress daughter Caroline that,after putting her details on Facebook,she was contacted by old flame Alan Buttershaw,whom she last saw in 1953. Caroline,who has just backed out of a gay affair with colleague Kate,has another shock when John,the husband who left her for another woman,asks to come back and she consents for their sons' sakes. Alan's daughter Gillian is also unhappy that her teen-aged son Raff,encouraged by his uncle Robbie,indulges in bike scrambling when his father Eddie died in a biking accident. Alan and Celia meet up and find old passions stirring. After a car chase in which Celia has pursued - and caught - the hoodie who stole Alan's vehicle the elderly pair amaze their daughters by announcing their engagement. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[Gillian has just driven into the parking space that Caroline was about to reverse into. Caroline is furious and yells abuse to Gillian as they both walk towards the pub]
Caroline: That was the most selfish, mindless piece of driving I have ever witnessed.
Gillian: I won't be a minute, love, then you can have the space.

Wonderfully Crafted Movie
21 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie, with a superb cast, and an excellent storyline. The love story between Alan and Celia takes you on a journey; a trip that you want to stay on forever.The characterizations are spot on, and it is too bad that this is not a series as this cast of characters was amazing. Sarah Lancashire as Caroline is brilliant. She has reached midlife and has decided that she will pursue a relationship with a woman. She is bold in her desire and resolute in her choice, as in maturity she has reached the point of acceptance. The dilemma is her Mother's reaction which is expected, however not accepted. How her traditional Mother resolves her reluctance to accept her daughter's choice and save her relationship deserves high praise. Emotional, personal and familial, a story so wonderfully crafted that it is viewable over and over again.
