When “Lady” Sandra Abbott discovers that her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif. The two could not be more different – Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where she starts finding her feet.
Look, this movie was made for people who have experienced life. It’s not for the mob who love big guns, fast cars, and equally fast ladies – it’s something for the older people who have experienced life – and it’s adorable!
It has so much heart, it’s as cosy as a pair of old slippers, and best of all… It’s SO British! It’s a charming look at the working-class in the vein of The Full Monty, and no it might not be as funny, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as good!
The cast is a who’s who of British talent.
There are numerous scenes which embarrassingly made me cry, one particularly towards the end of the movie which will absolutely break you!
