Finding Your Feet
When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years (John Sessions) is having an affair she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). The two could not be more different — Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community event where she meets her sister’s friends, Charlie (Timothy Spall), Jackie (Joanna Lumley) and Ted (David Hayman).
Finding Your Feet finds its own footing by putting its trust in its sturdy performers and avoiding many of the usual tea-time clichés as it allows its British cast to be defined by their relatable human circumstances more than quaint Anglo quirks.

There are things that the British simply do better than we do. One of them is creating romantic comedies with old people. Here's a new one, with a marvelous cast that's living it up.

When given the chance (which is always), the cast unlocks moments that are so intimate and naturally detailed, you would swear that the actors had no idea the cameras were rolling.

Precision-tooled for the Tuesday afternoon crowd it may be, but Finding Your Feet nevertheless does what it says on the tin, and does it expertly.
"Finding Your Feet" hits its romantic-comedy beats with an old-timer's clockwork efficiency.

This dramedy about middle-class Londoners in their 60s and 70s getting on with life has a genial watchability - even a stubborn relevance - thanks to its crackerjack ensemble cast, who play characters just eccentric enough to keep things tasty.
