I Won't Go (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary I Won't Go.
Oli is an elderly eccentric ex-headmistress in her nineties, who now lives isolated and housebound in her condemned country cottage - her only real companion is a small Shetland pony named 'Baby'. When Oli is visited by her former student turned filmmaker Georgina, a moving and surprising account of her life unfolds - from her unexpected past as a former millionaire, through to her daily struggles to keep her independence despite age and infirmity.
I Won't Go is an intimate portrait of a determined, lively and thoroughly unconventional elderly woman - a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, a celebration of independence and the desire to live our own lives. At the end of Oli's life, the film asks who is responsible for elderly care, and who is to decide where, and how we should live our final days?
