If you're elder, fit, and able, with too many years in an abusive relationship behind you, why not choose an adventure in the Scottish Highlands over a forced trip to a nursing facility? Sometimes you've just got to follow your heart and trust that the universe will help you be where your soul needs to be. And maybe, like Edie, serendipity will gift you in sometimes confusing, but often amazing ways.
This film is inspiring, encouraging, nurturing. Show me an elder person who doesn't want to hear a younger person say "if only I was a bit older." Yeah, the plot is a bit faulty and unrealistic in parts, but it's fun to witness Edie's determination, real or imagined.
Edie screens at the Victoria Film festival Friday February 9th at 7 pm at Sidney's Star Theatre, and Saturday February 10th at 6:30 pm at The Vic Theatre.
