Edith Moore (Hancock) is a bitter, gruff woman in her eighties. In the months following her husband death, her strained relationship with her daughter Nancy begins to worsen. The question over Edie’s future looms large; while Edie tries hard to convince Nancy she can manage fine by herself, Nancy is making plans for her mother to move to a retirement home. Desperate to fulfil a commitment made to her father to undertake a climbing trip on the Scottish Highlands, Edie sets out to make the trip alone. Featuring breath-taking scenery, the star of Edie is of course Hancock, giving a tour de force performance that also speaks eloquently about patriarchal control.
