Starring Academy Award® Winners Vanessa Redgrave and Brenda Fricker, and Academy Award® Nominee Imelda Staunton. Based on a short story by Maeve Binchy. Ellie (Hayley Atwell), a free-spirited and headstrong young woman, is left in charge of a residential home, owned and operated by her older sister Kate (Orla Brady), over the Christmas holidays. Her youth and inexperience bring her into bitter conflict with the four grumpy old residents known as the “Hard Core”: retired screen beauty Georgia (Vanessa Redgrave), spinster sisters Hazel (Imelda Staunton) and Heather (Brenda Fricker), and a reformed alcoholic judge, Donald (Joss Ackland). The film deals with the hilarious antics of these uncivilized seniors, the gradual solidarity that develops between the residents and Ellie, and an unlikely romance.
