The Press Reviews

  • Fleeting charm and pretty packaging will leave you partially satisfied but later craving a bolder film that puts its battle-worn title character to better use. Full Review

  • Sheila Hancock shines at the centre of an inspiring, unashamedly feel-good story. Full Review

  • This well-meaning film basically retreads the old ideas about the old person who in death's encroaching shadow has one last glorious life-affirming adventure... Full Review

  • The mere concept of Hancock, as the newly liberated widow of the title, clambering around Scottish mountainsides might be enough to sustain a trailer, but it doesn't go the distance here. Full Review

  • A committed performance from the redoubtable stage and screen veteran Sheila Hancock drives the final third of this wilderness drama into sublime places. Full Review
