Phoenix Cinema: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Retired pensioner Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent) lives in Kingsbridge with his wife Maureen (Penelope Wilton), whose marriage to him has become despondent and quiet.

One day, Harold receives a letter from his old friend, Queenie Hennessy (Linda Bassett), 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 using transport, or support from Maureen.

While on his journey, Harold encounters people who show interest in his hiking achievement, and he also thinks about his only son David (Earl Cave).
