Since the death of her husband Kate has been running a residential home for eldery residents. When her mother is taken ill, Kate reluctantly leaves her impetuous younger sister Ellie in charge over the Christmas period. Looking after the home proves to be a mammoth task. ALthough most of the residents have left to spend the festive season with their families four grumpy residents known as the "hard core" are left. Retired screen beauty Georgia, spinster sisters Hazel and Heather and reformed alcolohic High Court judge DOnald. Its a baptism of fire for Ellie whose youth and inexperience bring her head to head with the cantankerous foursome, resulting in hilarious and sometimes sad antics of these uncivilised seniors.

Without the stellar cast, this film would be weak because it's predictable, but outstanding acting performances given the rather ordinary storyline the oomph that it needs.
I also enjoyed the fact that the elderly characters were not stereotyped, Hollywood-style - there are no wise old owls or cutesy, twinkly grannies here; just ordinary folk who happen to be old.
It's slow to get going, so bear with it. There is an interesting, poignant subplot featuring the Nightingale sisters that merits perseverence. And in general, the second half is better than the first.
I can see where another reviewer came from when they gave up part the way through, but to use a reference to football, you should never leave the ground when by far the best is yet to come!
Loved the film and I will certainly be looking out for Hayley Atwell in cast lists for future selections...
This film could go in several directions at this point but director Anthony Byrne decides to keep his feet on the ground and steer a path through the obvious clichés. For the largest part he is successful.
Hayley Atwell becomes quite charming as the free spirit questioning why people would hide themselves away from the world in such a secluded place and her refusal to either be offended or to tolerate the bad behaviour of her four charges is the catalyst that leads to a gentle and believable examination of other people who are in the later years of their life.
Joss Ackland is excellent as the grumpy Donald Vanston, a man touched by sadness but still interested in living a life if only he could find someone to share it with. He is attracted to one time singer and showgirl Georgia Platts, beautifully played by Vanessa Redgrave, but she is lost in her past and bemoaning the loss of her youth. The Nightingale sisters, played by Brenda Fricker and Imelda Staunton are hiding from a secret years old, a self imposed seclusion that reduces them to an almost childish attitude towards others.
As these five people find themselves alone over Christmas inevitable reactions occur as Ellie’s free spirit nature begins to be felt.Read more ›
