Allelujah is a warm and deeply moving story about old age. When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back by galvanizing the local community: they invite a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of the hospital’s most distinguished nurse. What could go wrong?
Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi are among the stars of this comedy adapted from Alan Bennett’s play of the same name that balances wisecracks about aging with a blistering commentary on NHS health-care cuts.
