The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.
Apologies once again for having to cancel our February performance. We’re back to business as usual for March and will be showing The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (2023) which is based on the bestselling novel by Rachel Joyce. Starring Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent as Harold and Penelope Wilton as his wife Maureen, the film tells the story of a man who leaves his seaside town in South Devon to deliver a message to an old friend. Harold is an unremarkable man, well into his 60s, he is content to fade quietly into the background of life. But when he learns his friend Queenie is dying, he is moved to act. He leaves home, walking to the post box to send her a letter, until he realises a letter is not enough. In that moment Harold decides to keep walking, all the way to her hospice, some 500 miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed: as long as he walks, Queenie must live. Surprising himself as much as his wife Maureen, Harold embarks on a walk of hope, determined to travel the length of England to save his friend.
