Heartwarming British movie Edie will be available on digital download in less than two weeks’ time, Arrow Films have revealed.
Director Simon Hunter’s tale follows Edith Moore (Sheila Hancock), an elderly woman who in the aftermath of her controlling husband’s death decides to fulfil a life-long dream. Edie packs her bags and heads to the Scottish highlands for a spot of mountain climbing, where she forms an unusual friendship with Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) who she employed to help her on the gruelling adventure.
Remarkably, there was no body double for the 84-year-old (at time of filming) Hancock during the mountain climbing scenes, shot on location in Sutherland.
The film received its World Premiere at the 2017 Edinburgh International Film Festival, where it was also nominated for the prestigious Michael Powell Award.
Edie will be available on Digital Download from 17th September, followed by DVD and Blu-Ray from 29th October.
Special features on the home release include: Behind The Scenes of Edie; To Climb a Mountain and; Recording the Music Score.
