It seems that only the British truly understand how to meld a cast of highly talented individuals into an ensemble cast that successfully combines humour with pathos. This film is one of those gems that deserves to be seen by as wide an audience as possible.
Marion Arthur (Vanessa Redgrave) is terminally ill, but despite her infirmity , is an enthusiastic member of a local age old pensioners' choir, directed by a young music teacher (Gemma Arterton). Arthur (Terence Stamp) is her crusty husband who, hiding his vulnerability under a gruff exterior, cannot find it in himself to make peace with his estranged son, James (Christopher Ecclestone). The only link between the two, is James's daughter Jennifer (Orla Hill). As Marion's life slips away, Arthur is reluctantly drawn into the family that is the OAPz, and the healing power of music. If I have one criticism of this moving film, it is that there isn't enough of the marvellous music.
