Sitting squarely in the young-at-heart-oldsters genre established way when back in Cocoon, this comedy drama lets Joss Ackland, Vanessa Redgrave, Brenda Fricker and Imelda Staunton nibble the scenery as cantankerous residents of an Irish care home being run by bright young thing Hayley Atwell.
Based on a short story by Maeve Binchy, Anthony Byrne’s modest tale is inoffensive, robustly acted and even a little poignant, particularly when dealing with Staunton’s traumatic past.
Pity, then, that nearly every plot turn is as inevitable as old age.
