Edie (12A)


A drama in which a woman attempts to fulfil her dream of climbing a Scottish mountain with the help of a young guide.

The critical consensus

Fleeting charm and pretty packaging will leave you partially satisfied but later craving a bolder film that puts its battle-worn title character to better use.

**(*)(*)(*)Beth Webb, Empire Online, 18/05/2018

Sheila Hancock shines at the centre of an inspiring, unashamedly feel-good story.

***(*)(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 21/05/2018

The filmmakers show us both the cost and the rewards for the venerable mountaineer.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/05/2018

Hancock lifts this drama about an older woman’s last-gasp adventure hiking in Scotland, but it’s familiar terrain.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/05/2018

An uplifting character study that’s definitely worth a look.

****(*)Jamie Neish, Little White Lies, 24/05/2018

Unfortunately, while Hancock is good in the role, and Kevin Guthrie is quite charming as the young guide she employs to help her conquer the mountain, the film’s faux crowd-pleasing tone is condescending in ways its eponymous heroine surely wouldn’t tolerate.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 25/05/2018

A mountaineering drama in which Sheila Hancock strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young man lacks chemistry.
