Sandra, newly minted Lady Abbott in her lawyer husband Mike Abbott having been knighted, does whatever needed to present a perfect upper crust life and marriage, including maintaining a proper decorum. Older Bif is the carefree one, living for the moment, including not caring that her council estate apartment in inner city London is a pigsty, just as long as she can find whatever she needs.

Trivia

Although Timothy Spall and Imelda Staunton had both appeared in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010), they shared no scenes together in both movies so this was their first real acting collaboration. In the 1970s, they attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) together. See more »

Goofs

The interior and exterior shots of Bif's home could not be the same place. The exteriors shots showed a apartment building with single story apartments all identical. In the interior shots, right inside the front door was a stair case upward to a second floor. See more »

A must watch fil
26 February 2018 | by Figgy66-915-598470See all my reviews

26 February 2018 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - Finding Your Feet. This is a great film about growing older and learning to enjoy it. It's a film with happiness, sadness, joy and disappointment. Starring some of our favourite older actors and actresses this is the story of Sandra (Imelda Staunton) who, as she is about to embark on her golden years with her husband, discovers he has been having an affair. Sandra immediately decamps to her sister's tiny flat and proceeds to fall apart. What happens next is a tale of survival and reinvention as she puts her life back together. I thought this film was great, we met people with problems and secrets of their own who came together to forget about it all in a weekly dance class. I hope we can all age like this, there was very little that was graceful about it but my goodness they looked like they could have some fun. A great cast including Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley and the utterly fabulous Celia Imre, I urge you to go and see his film, even if for a couple of hours to escape your own life. Funny, moving, outrageous and lots of fun.
