This light drama unfolds in a very simple, undemanding fashion. Best described as a gentle, coming-of-age (lessness) affair.
Edie has heart and pathos, but had the potential to be something much more, as it ticks all the boxes but never breaks out of them.
Within its own modest goals, Edie achieves its purpose, to deliver an uncontroversial message...
Not a lot really happens in Edie; the pace is gentle and the story familiar, but it's a pleasant, easy experience - aided by the dramatic mountain footage.
[Sheila Hancock] delivers a nuanced and poignant performance as a woman determined to achieve her goal, yet still doubting her ability to carry it out (and equally impressively Hancock did all her own "stunts").
In common with its difficult protagonist and her hardscrabble holiday, director Simon Hunter's film is pleasingly gritty, even in moments of levity.
Edie leaves these charming possibilities lingering and trembles with a poignant sense of mystery and loss.
Hancock convinces as the touchy but tenacious Edie, and the film's sometimes saccharine storyline is underscored by moments of melancholy. It's slight, but moving.
She may have an entire film devoted to her, but Sheila Hancock's elderly Edie remains an indistinct character.
The film works better in its second half and, although predictable, is enjoyable.
With its drab, overpowering score, this tedious drama is nearly as gruelling as the trek up Scotland's Suilven...
The dialogue can be heavy-handed and the banter weak but a sprightly performance from its 85-year-old star ensures it peaks with a touching finale.
