Sheila Hancock plays Edie, a woman in her 80s who has sacrificed much of her life to looking after her ailing, bad-tempered and ungrateful husband.

Recalling her youth as a freer spirit, and their plan to climb Suilven in Sutherland, a beautiful but daunting mountain, together, Edie heads up to the west coast of Scotland to finally make the climb. She is tricked into hiring a guide and fitness coach, Jonny (Kevin Guthrie), whose motives – at least at first – are purely mercenary. Inevitably, they end up bonding. Edie is unashamedly sentimental, but it has bags of charm and pathos, and Sheila Hancock turns in a career-best performance.

Dir: Simon Hunter
Stars: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan
