Director Richard Loncraine [Wimbledon (2004), The Gathering Storm (2002)] has assembled a top-notch cast for this hilarious and heart-warming modern comedy targeted at an older demographic and with a message that it’s never too late to start again.

When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda 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). Sandra couldn’t be more different to her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling. But things turn out better – as 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.

Featuring a star-studded UK cast including Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley and David Hayman, Finding Your Feet is a ‘safe’ comedy with few real narrative surprises – a feel-good film which acknowledges many of the painful experiences of growing older.

With a well-tailored soundtrack and excellent film locations – including Rome – the film is elevated by touching scenes between the wonderful Staunton and Imrie.
