Director: Hettie Macdonald

Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent), a retired man living in Devon with his wife Maureen (Penelope Wilton), receives word that an old friend, Queenie (Linda Bassett), is dying in a hospice in Berwick-upon-Tweed. He goes to post Queenie a letter, however a chance conversation with a blue-haired service station cashier prompts him to bridge over 500 miles of distance by walking there instead.

This film is a showcase for two phenomenal actors whose relationship holds both decades of recriminations and pockets of love. The subtext behind the pilgrimage is that an act of kindness from decades ago can stay with a person and compel them to shake off the shackles of shame. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is about the lengths that even sceptical people will go to for each other, a length that often defies all logic.
