Finding Your Feet

Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake) has her prim and proper life turned upside down after discovering her husband's affair in this British rom-com co-starring Timothy Spall.

When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged, bohemian, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie, Bridget Jones's Diary). Sandra couldn’t be more different to her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling. But it turns out different is just what Sandra needs and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to her community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet... and romance.

Bitter sweet, with a pedigree English cast, Finding Your Feet may be predictable fare, but it has a heart of solid gold.

It's a promising set-up, but the story is profoundly predictable.

Perhaps this film should have been a stage musical.

... is far from the worst of its kind, despite a mediocre script (by Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft) that goes for easy laughs and signals every plot development well in advance.

Unlikely to be hailed by anyone as a future classic. But it's a friendly and comfortable movie, recognisably human at least in spots.

That this sometimes paint-by-numbers approach doesn't result in a bland, uninspired facsimile is down to the charisma and chutzpah of its leading lights.

Charming, if somewhat predictable, crowd-pleaser about embracing life in your later years.

I do love these films, I'm old but not quite as old as those actors but still I love a little British gem full of familiar seasoned actors. Imelda Staunton and Timothy Spall are so perfect in this. I didn't expect to need tissues so that was regrettable but its so life affirming it only added to that feeling. I've seen better but this film still has merit....
