Finding Your Feet
A Kay Meek Presentation
TIFF Film Circuit
As the newly minted “Lady” Abbot, Sandra (Imelda Staunton, Pride; Another Year) is on top of the world and looking forward to enjoying the rest of her life with her husband, Mike (John Sessions, Denial; Florence Foster Jenkins). However, when Sandra discovers Mike embracing her best friend and uncovers their years-long affair, her plans for their idyllic retirement dissolve before her eyes. With her picture-perfect but stuffy aristocratic life crumbling around her, Sandra moves in with her eccentric sister, Bif (Celia Imrie, Bridget Jones’s Baby; The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), and embarks on a journey to find herself and reconnect with her decidedly less-posh roots. As Bif’s patience for her sister’s self-pity wears thin, and in hopes of snapping her out of her funk, Bif invites Sandra to join her dance class and meet her friends Charlie (Timothy Spall, Mr. Turner; Denial), Jackie (Joanna Lumley, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie; The Wolf of Wall Street), and Ted (David Hayman, Macbeth; The Boy in the Striped Pajamas). Surrounded by new friends and reviving her longstanding love for dance, Sandra comes to enjoy her new life with her sister — but she can’t avoid her past for long. Featuring an all-star cast of Film Circuit favourites, Finding Your Feet proves it’s never too late to start again and reconnect with the people you love.
