Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton star in film, TV and theatre director Hettie Macdonald’s (Beautiful Thing, White Girl, TV’s Normal People) adaptation of Rachel Joyce’s best-selling, award-winning 2012 novel The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. South Devon: Harold (Broadbent) has made mistakes with all the important things: being a husband, a father and a friend. Well into his 60s, he is now content to fade quietly into the background. But when he learns his old friend Queenie (Linda Bassett) is unwell, he walks to the local post office to send her a letter, and out of the blue, decides to keep walking – all the way to her hospice, 450 miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed, and much to the despair of his wife Maureen (Wilton), who’s left reeling at home. Shot on location across the UK from Devon to Northumberland, The Unlikely Pilgrimage… follows Harold as he considers his troubled past, comes into life-changing contact with strangers and engages with the restorative natural world. A poignant and philosophical film about the potential for redemption and renewal in later life.
