Product Description

Product Description

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.

If it's a frothy "feel-good" seasonal film that you require, this is for you. It has yuletide spirit in abundance, a lovely Christmas soundtrack, snow, a cosy pub, shots of delicious festive food etc.

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.

A ' feel good ' film. Funny and poignant with a good ending! Brilliant performances by Joss Ackland, Vanessa Redgrave and Brenda Fricker. One to watch more than once.

Good story with an excellent cast, probably a million miles off what the grim reality of a nursing home represents), I enjoy it and the the stories of the difficult characters who recognised their oppertunities to be friends for Christmas.

Like most I selected the film based on the presence of Joss and Vanessa in the cast list. Yes there performances were indeed spot on, particularly Vanessa's, but for me Hayley Atwell stole the show when she... ...well if you want to know then you had better get a hold of a copy!
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 really grows on you and I found myself becoming very attached to the characters, I think this is because they have flaws which makes them more realistic. It is refreshing to see older people portrayed as multi-dimensional and not just stereotypical caricatures. The story is simple but well executed and has great charm. A good film to watch when your mood needs to be uplifted. A seasonal story of goodwill.

I just loved this film. Every year I look for new Christmas films and happened upon this one and I'm glad I did. I just loved everything about it. The cast is amazing, everyone of them brilliant in their roles. Vanessa Redgrave is fabulous as the quirky Georgia, Brenda Fricker and Imelda Staunton are both superb as the Nightingale sisters, Joss Ackland as the grumpy Donald and Orla Brady & Hayley Atwell as sisters Kate & Ellie. If you looking for a quiet, light hearted, poignant feel good film then I would highly recommend this one.

I bought this movie because of the other reviews here on Amazon said it was a feel good movie filled with holiday cheer and atmosphere. While I enjoyed the movie well enough, and I will say the cast and their performances were superb, this film should not be confused with a holiday movie meant to bring laughter and lightheartedness to your holidays. It is a decent drama that is certainly worth seeing at least once, but the unmistakable sense of melancholy that permeates most of the first 3/4 of the movie was almost enough for me to turn it off before watching the end. It's not a bad film, just not something to inspire Christmas joy and laughter, in my opinion.

Ellie Harris (Hayley Atwell) drifts back to the residential home run by her elder sister Kate (Orla Brady) looking for work and somewhere to stay. Kate already has enough problems with four residents causing enough trouble to drive others away and dissuade new customers from setting foot in the place, what she doesn’t need is her irresponsible sister turning up looking for charity. Events and sisterly love force Kate’s hand, however, and when their mother falls ill she leaves the home and the four troublesome residents with Ellie.
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.
