Edie

Critics Consensus

Edie often reduces a remarkable story to a rather ordinary viewing experience, but it's elevated considerably by Sheila Hancock's work in the title role.

Movie Info

Following the death of her husband, Edie (Sheila Hancock) breaks free from years of his control and rebels against her daughter's wish for her to move into assisted living by embarking on an adventure she and her father had always longed for: a trip to the Scottish Highlands to climb the world famous Mt. Suilven. Along the way, she hires young camping shop owner Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) to be her guide. Despite the generational differences, Jonny encourages Edie to fulfill her dream.

  • The growing friendship between Edie and Jonny has an understated but very genuine warmth.

    September 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Something tells me a documentary on Hancock simply navigating the rigors of "Edie," as well as acting it to the fullest, might have been more readily inspiring.

    September 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The story in "Edie" may get sidetracked from time to time, but Hancock never does, with a focus every bit the equal of her character's, if not more so.

    September 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Hancock is wasted here, as are the meaty dramatic threads that Elizabeth O'Halloran's formulaic screenplay never bothers to pull.

    September 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The only thing that does not disappoint is the ravishing and varied landscape, even if it is shot a bit like a tourist board advertisement.

  • Debbie Wiseman's eager and overemotional score sometimes undermines the actors' more quiet work. But the uplifting "Edie" is worthy of your time, mostly thanks to Hancock and Scotland's natural beauty.
