Club Scannánaíochta showing The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a 2023 British drama film directed by Hettie MacDonald.

It is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Rachel Joyce. The film stars Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton.

Retired pensioner Harold Fry lives in Kingsbridge with his wife Maureen, whose marriage to him has become despondent and quiet.

One day, Harold receives a letter from his old friend, Queenie Hennessy, who is dying from cancer and is living in a hospice in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Harold then decides to walk the length of England to reach Berwick-upon-Tweed without the use of transport or support from Maureen.

Along the way, he encounters a variety of people who show interest in his hiking achievement.
