Open your heart. Find your voice.
A wonderful, heart-warming story of a loving marriage between grumpy pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) and the ever-cheerful Marion (Vanessa Redgrave). While she is happy to sing her heart out with the unconventional local choir, cantankerous but doting Arthur would prefer to hide himself away and complain about how embarrassing it all is.
But when heartbreak strikes, Arthur is forced to re-think his outlook on life. With the steady perseverance of choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton), Arthur begins to find a way to come out of his shell, and in the process forms new friendships and rebuilds old ones.
