“Filled with grand, old British charm Finding Your Feet is a feel-good film about discovering that it’s never too late to start again. When 'Lady' Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) finds out her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she struggles to deal with ‘the shame of her predicament’ and seeks refuge with her estranged, older sister, Bif (Celia Imrie), who lives on an inner-city council estate. The two could not be more different. Sandra is middle-class, snobbish and judgemental, and a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial-dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to her community dance class. In this heart-warming romantic comedy, a colourful group of defiant and energetic golden-agers (including Timothy Spall and Joanna Lumley) show Sandra that retirement is, in fact, only the beginning. Divorce might give her a whole new lease on life…and love.” - Cunard British Film Festival. “Following in the footsteps of films such as Calendar Girls and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel comes another charming crowd-pleaser about embracing life in your later years.” - The New Zealand Herald.
