Sixties beauties Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp bring gravitas and pathos to this well-worn tale of pensioners competing in a choir competition.

They play long-married couple Arthur and Marion: he’s a septuagenarian who cares for his terminally-ill wife, Marion, who finds joy in a local seniors’ choir. It’s a simple, low-key tearjerker blessed by a heartfelt performance from Stamp.
