The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

12A

Starring Jim Broadbent in the story of an unremarkable man who sets off on a remarkable journey.

Harold lives a life without purpose until he learns an old friend is dying and vows that in walking across England to see her, his journey can keep her alive. Based on the 2012 New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller of the same name, this heartfelt and original take on the coming-of-age narrative will resonate with audiences of all ages.

Recently retired, Harold Fry is well into his 60s and content to fade quietly into the background of life. Harold’s life with his wife Maureen is uneventful and their marriage frozen, due to an unspeakable conflict relating to the absence of their son, until one day, Harold learns his old friend Queenie is dying. He sets off to the post office to send her a letter and decides to keep walking: all the way to her hospice, 450 miles away.

It is the first work from Director Hettie Macdonald since the successful BBC series Normal People.

“It’s a non-religious pilgrim story about the power of hope and faith. A movie that celebrates everyday joys and human connection. The perfect pick-me-up tonic for tough times.” Metro

“Broadbent is a wonder, so real and sincere it doesn’t feel like acting.” Spectator

“This politely unassuming little film builds into a wrenching examination of grief, guilt and eventual closure.” Observer
