Finding Your Feet (12A)

Comedy, Drama, Romance

On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.

The critical consensus

Sometimes it's hard not to cringe at their antics but the joie de vivre of these convention-defying pensioners is ultimately irresistible. It's a familiar blend, with just a dash of daring.

Finding Your Feet touches on some dark subjects – Alzheimer’s, depression, cancer – but somehow always manages to keep up its irrepressibly cheery and inane mood.

Imelda Staunton and Celia Imrie play sisters forced to live under the same roof in a feelgood but frustrating comedy.

The cast lend charm to this feelgood fairy tale and Celia Imrie is especially good as the inspiring Bif.

Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall and co excel in this comedy romance, but can’t quite make up for the film’s cynical heart.

***(*)(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 25/02/2018

Finding Your Feet manages to transcend some of its more egregiously patronising and cringeworthy moments thanks to deeply felt performances.
