Based on Rachel Joyce’s 2012 best-selling book of the same name, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a touching story of memory and redemption.
British acting royalty Jim Broadbent stars as Harold, an older gentleman who - upon receiving news that an old colleague is in a hospice - embarks on a journey of reflection walking the length of the country to see her.
Along the way he revisits painful memories of his strained relationship with his son, and faces the frustrations of his wife (Wilton) he has left at home.
