The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry12A

Directed by Hettie Macdonald | UK | 2023 | 1h 48m | Starring Jim Broadbent, Penelope Wilton, Maanuv Thiara, Monika Gossmann, Nina Singh

In south Devon, a seemingly unremarkable man in his sixties one day learns an old friend is dying and decides to get in touch. He walks to his local post office to send a letter, and out of the blue, decides to keep walking – all the way to her hospice, 450 miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton star in this poignant adaptation of Rachel Joyce’s best-selling, award-winning novel of 2012.

Reviews

‘It is immediately one of the great movies about ageing and regret, up there with 45 Years and The Straight Story.’
★★★★
Kevin Maher, The Times

‘This politely unassuming little film builds into a wrenching examination of grief, guilt and eventual closure.’
★★★★
Wendy Ide, The Observer

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
