Soft Subtitled Screening: Finding Your Feet

Richard Loncraine

The premise that it is never too late to find love might be a tried and tested rom-com formula, but there’s a good reason for that. This heart-warming idea gives hope, even to the most cynical amongst us.

When well-to-do 'Lady' Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) finds out her husband of 40 years (John Sessions) is having an affair with her best friend, she struggles to deal with “the shame of her predicament” and seeks refuge with her estranged older sister, Bif (Celia Imrie). The two women could not be more different. Sandra is snobbish and judgmental, and a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial-dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to her community dance class. The colourful group of defiant and energetic third-agers Sandra meets show her that retirement is, in fact, only the beginning. Divorce might give her a whole new lease of life... and love.

The cast plays out like a who’s who of British talent over a certain age, as Staunton and Imrie are joined by Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley and David Hayman in this absolutely charming romantic comedy. We all need a bit of lightness as we step into spring and Finding Your Feet is just the ticket
