Finding Your Feet

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“So you think you can still dance? That’s the question ultimately leveled at Imelda Staunton’s character in this comedy-drama about retirement-age Brits. The Harry Potter franchise actress plays Sandra, the snobby and uptight wife of John Session’s well-heeled policeman Mike, who we first discover overseeing a party to celebrate hubbie being made a Lord. Alas, Sandra is soon herself discovering Mike canoodling with a family friend and, as it turns out, his lover-of-five-years. What is a pillar of suburban British society to do when she discovers her upper middle-class life is a sham? Why, of course, move in with her free-spirited, weed-smoking sister Bif, played by Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). After trying to drink her problems away, Sandra reluctantly agrees to her sibling’s suggestion that they attend a local dance class for folks of similar vintage to themselves. There, over time, Staunton’s character finds both her childhood love of choreography and her zest for life being rekindled with help from fellow attendees portrayed by Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous), David Hayman (Taboo), and Timothy Spall (Secrets and Lies), whose own spouse no longer recognizes him, due to Alzheimer’s… Finding Your Feet leans heavily on its cast of British screen greats. Luckily, Staunton, Imrie, Spall, Lumley et al are up to the task of dancing around…” —Entertainment Weekly. PG-13. 111 Min.
