Edie features a stand-out performance from Sheila Hancock, who takes an everyday story and makes it into a truly inspiring tale.
Hancock is Edie, an elderly woman living under the hand of her husband, who she’s been taking care of for the past thirty years after a blood clot left him reliant on her.
In the aftermath of his death, her daughter wants to ship her off to a home, but Edie has other ideas. She’s long cherished a postcard sent from her now deceased father years ago promising they’d one day reunite on Suilven, one of the most distinctive mountains in Scotland. Free and in search of meaning, she packs her bags and heads north, unaware of the magnitude of what she’s to do.
With plenty of inspiration to be found, with each step of Edie’s adventure taking her closer to
discovering her true self and restoring the happiness she lost for so much of her life.
