THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY
Tuesday 12th December
Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent) is recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives with a letter addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye.
Harold pens a reply to his old friend and former work colleague – just a few stunted lines on headed notepaper - and takes a stroll to the postbox. But for some reason he can’t bring himself to post the letter.
Then a chance encounter in a petrol station gives Harold a new purpose: he decides to walk from Devon to Berwick-upon-Tweed, where Queenie is receiving palliative care in a hospice. It’s an act of faith: he believes that by plodding through the B-roads of rural Britain he can save her life. His wife, Maureen (Penelope Wilton), hurt and confused by her husband’s abandonment, vacuums despondently.
A MAN CALLED OTTO
Tuesday 9th January
The picture stars an uncharacteristically abrasive Tom Hanks as Otto, a short-fused widower who crankily micromanages everything in his street, and also his own multiple suicide attempts. The arrival of new neighbours – heavily pregnant Marisol, her useless husband and their kids – interrupts Otto’s plans to rejoin his recently departed wife.
If there’s one thing even more attractive than the sweet embrace of death, it’s the opportunity to demonstrate the correct way of doing stuff. Everything from parallel parking to dishwasher maintenance falls under Otto’s self-appointed remit. But Otto is slowly worn down by the warmth and generosity of Marisol, so all but the most dogged of sceptics amongst us will be charmed by the message of the redemptive power of small acts of kindness.
