Arrow Films is delighted to announce the UK release of EDIE, in cinemas from 25 May 2018. Directed by Simon Hunter, EDIE features a truly moving performance from Sheila Hancock (Cabaret, Entertaining Mr Sloane) in an inspiring tale.
Sheila Hancock plays Edie, recently widowed, who in the aftermath of the death of her controlling husband, decides to fulfil a life-long dream and overcome a lifetime of bitterness and resentment. At the tender age of eighty-three, Edie sets out to try and capture a little of the magic she had as a young girl by climbing a Scottish mountain. Against her daughter’s wishes, she heads to Scotland and employs Jonny (Kevin Guthrie – Dunkirk, Whisky Galore!) to help her prepare for the gruelling climb ahead – which sparks an unusual and rewarding friendship.
The story is a tale of triumph over adversity, as Edie embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, set against the stunning backdrop of the Scottish Highlands.
