Hancock asks for "Gas" for her ancient camping stove, and is sold a "threaded" canister - the stove she presents is a pressure operated paraffin model, and even if she was losing her faculties, it is unlikely she would have made such an error. See more »

A mixed bag
11 June 2018 | by martinnbrownSee all my reviews

No, I'm not referring to the wonderful Sheila Hancock! The underlying theme for both protagonists is "don't continue wasting your life" and "it's never too late". Using the staggering beauty of the Scottish highlands as a backdrop, 83 year old Edie and 30ish Jonny embark on a journey up a mountain(don't worry, there's no sex). The story is simple, the script is just about bearable, though forced at times but Hancock's performance is amazing. I have nothing but admiration for her ability to tackle this range of emotions and the purely physical demands of filming. The ending was rather sudden for me but the film was enjoyable. However "Best film ever" as one reviewer said, umm, no, I don't think so!
