Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Following the death of her husband, Edie (Sheila Hancock) breaks free from years of his control and rebels against her daughter's wish for her to move into assisted living by embarking on an adventure she and her father had always longed for: a trip to the Scottish Highlands to climb the world famous Mt. Suilven. Along the way, she hires young camping shop owner Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) to be her guide. Despite the generational differences, Jonny encourages Edie to fulfill her dream.

Goofs

  • 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.

The uplifting Edie is worthy of your time, mostly thanks to Hancock and Scotland’s natural beauty.

Featuring an excellent performance by veteran British actress Sheila Hancock (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), who is clearly up to both the challenging emotional and physical demands of the title role, Edie earns points for good intentions but never quite succeeds in managing to scale its thematic summit.
