We’ve partnered with Mothers’ Union to create a special version of our EDIE companion booklet for church groups. This resource has background information about the making of the film, as well as discussion questions and reflections. EDIE is a moving story about regret and renewal, starring Sheila Hancock and Kevin Guthrie, in cinemas from May 25th.
You can download the booklet from the Mothers’ Union site.
Edith Moore (Sheila Hancock) is a bitter, gruff woman in her eighties. In the months following her husband’s death, her daughter Nancy plans for her to move to a retirement home – and Edie feels like it is the beginning of the end. It seems she will die carrying all the regrets of her past.
One regret haunts her most of all. When Edie was younger, her father planned a climbing trip for them in the Scottish Highlands. She yearned to go, but her husband, a difficult and controlling man, made her stay at home. Now nearly thirty years later, Edie decides to make the trip herself alone.
As Mt Suilven looms ahead, she realises how daunting the climb will be. She hires Jonny (Kevin Guthrie), a local man, to help her prepare – sparking an unexpected friendship, and an adventure which will change her life.
