Edie (Sheila Hancock) has spent 40 years trapped in a colourless life in England, tending to her controlling husband (Donald Pelmear) after his stroke. When he passes away and her daughter (Wendy Morgan) tries to send her to a care home, she packs an old camping bag, leaves her life behind and embarks on an adventure she never got to have - climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.
Joined by Johnny (Kevin Guthrie), a reluctant local guide, Edie travels to the beautiful village of Lochinver in the Scottish Highlands. Despite the misgivings of Johnny s girlfriend (Amy Manson) and flatmate (Paul Brannigan), Edie and Johnny form an unlikely friendship. The journey to the summit will be long and difficult, but Edie is determined to prove to herself and everyone else that it s never too late.
Directed by Simon Hunter and produced by Mark Stothert, EDIE is an unforgettable, immersive visual journey through the unspoiled wilderness of the Scottish highlands, beautifully scored by Debbie Wiseman, MBE, and written by Elizabeth O Halloran, Edward Lynden-Bell and Simon Hunter.

Through an unlikely friendship with young local Jonny, Edie learns just how strong and resilient she can be, and in doing so, finds herself.
Join Edie on a journey of self-discovery and heart, as she fulfills the adventure of a lifetime.
Go Behind the Scenes of Edie
"Edie was always my love letter to Scotland, to the weather and heather, the mountains and waves. We could not have made the movie without the generosity, kindness and patience of the local population. I hope they can share in our pride at making such a movie that has captured hearts and minds across the world".

I loved seeing Hancock in this. A nice change from the usual grand dames of British octogenarian acting, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Vanessa Redgrave. Also really liked Kevin Guthrie who plays the young man whom she persuades to be her guide.
Nice film, nice acting, nice message. Don't give up on your dreams. And while it may never be too late to fulfil attainable wishes during a lifetime, it may become harder the older you get. And maybe there's another lesson here: don't wait too long before doing what's important to yourself. Don't let a bully take all your dreams away. Or it could be I'm just reading that into it. Anyway, if you enjoy a film with much nature and glorious landscapes, with realistic characters and without exciting action scenes, this is a nice one to watch. I'm glad I did.
I think I can honestly say, inspirational.
I think I enjoyed this film because I knew all about the area it was supposed to have been filmed in. Some of the scenery wasn't quite right, and the hotel she stayed in the north west of Scotland is certainly not as lush as the film made out, and every one seemed to have a Scottish accent from the Glasgow or Edinburgh area. Have to say that does annoy me when that happens in films, as Scotland, like the rest of the UK has varied accents and slang. We don't all say "hey Jimmy, or Och aye!!". That aside it was a good film and enjoyable to watch.
