‘Finding Your Feet’ Review: It’s Dancing With The Seniors As Spry British Cast Makes All The Right Moves

‘Finding Your Feet’ Review: It’s Dancing With The Seniors As Spry British Cast Makes All The Right Moves
A feel-good British comedy in the vein of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the new film Finding Your Feet finds its own feet by presenting light and engaging fare employing veteran English actors in ways we rarely get to see them on the big screen. As I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), in these dark times this is the kind of hopeful, mature entertainment that just might drag older adult audiences out to the movies.

Starting Thursday, it then expands to 4,200 locations, while launching day and date internationally in 62 markets. Tracking on the film, with a reported budget between $150 million and $175 million, is down slightly from initial estimates of $45 million to $55 million over its four-day opening.

Film Review: ‘Finding Your Feet’

Film Review: ‘Finding Your Feet’
For a film as ostensibly bouncy as “Finding Your Feet,” there’s an awful lot of death in it. That’s no bad thing. As Richard Loncraine’s good-natured golden-years comedy zips through zero weddings and a couple of funerals, the light pressure of mortality on proceedings gives an otherwise silly, sentimental affair a glancing connection with real life and its limits: It’s the kind of feelgood cinema that at least pays lip service to other feelings. Starring Imelda Staunton as a wronged society wife forced to drop her airs and gain some oxygen when she moves in with her freewheeling boho sister (a sparkling Celia Imrie), “Feet” rests pleasantly enough on its mild Sunday-lunch charms and the unstrained gifts of a tony ensemble: Sure to be forever bound to “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” via “if you like this” algorithms, it has its own, more grounded appeal.

The film’s U.

Banish blockbusters, say older UK cinemagoers

Imelda Staunton, star of new film Finding Your Feet, claims that ageing audiences want real characters, not violence and special effects

Ageing cinema audiences want to watch films with intelligent dialogue that deal with real people, according to Imelda Staunton. Yet they are let down by a male-dominated industry that makes “terrible” blockbusters fuelled by violence and special effects.

The Oscar-nominated actress stars in a new heart-warming romantic comedy called Finding Your Feet, whose cast includes Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, David Hayman and Joanna Lumley. The makers hope the movie will tap into the success of “grey pound” films such as 2011’s The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which made more than £100m.

Judi Dench Could Nab an Oscar Nod for Playing Queen Victoria, Again: Career Watch

Judi Dench Could Nab an Oscar Nod for Playing Queen Victoria, Again: Career Watch
In this edition of Career Watch we take on Judi Dench, who at 83 is a full-on movie star and could earn her eighth Oscar nomination for the title role in Stephen Frears’ “Victoria & Abdul.”

Bottom Line: Dame Judi Dench far prefers theater (it offers more control than director-centric moviemaking), but she’s also a marquee draw in TV and movies. She’s always stellar no matter the material (see: “The Chronicles of Reddick”), and she’s a real draw for (older) moviegoers, from two-hander “Notes on a Scandal” opposite Cate Blanchett to Dench’s other franchise, “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”

Career Peaks: Forty years after her stage debut as Ophelia at the Old Vic, Dench broke out in 1997 in “Mrs Brown” as Queen Victoria, earning her first Oscar nomination. (She notoriously claimed that she had Harvey Weinstein’s name “tattooed on my bum, which I hadn’t. I

“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”

It’s time to head back to Kalokairi, and all the singing, dancing, and stunning scenery that made audiences fall in love with the Greek island in “Mamma Mia!” A trailer for the 2008 film’s sequel has dropped, and it sees Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) returning to the island she planned to get married on. This time around, she’s pregnant.

Sadly, Sophie is returning to Kalokairi and preparing for motherhood without her own mother, Donna (Meryl Streep), by her side in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.” Donna has died sometime between the events of the first film and this one.
