Harold is an ordinary man who has passed through life, living on the sidelines, until he goes to post a letter one day…and just keeps walking.
Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent) was never meant to be a hero. He’s an unremarkable man who has failed at all the important things: being a husband, a father and a friend. Now, well into his 60s, he is content to fade quietly into the background of life. But when Harold learns his friend Queenie (Linda Bassett) is dying, he is moved to act. He leaves home, walking to the post box to send her a letter until he realises a letter is not enough. In that moment, Harold decides to keep walking, all the way to her hospice, some 500 miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Based on the best-selling book of the same name by award-winning author Rachel Joyce, who also wrote the screenplay, this is the story of a man who leaves his seaside town in South Devon to deliver a message to an old friend. Starring Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!) as Harold and Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) as his wife Maureen, this uplifting tale is one of self-discovery, redemption and learning to seize the moment.
