The 2017 British film Finding Your Feet features actresses Celia Imrie (Kingdom, Nanny McPhee) and Imelda Stanton (Vera Drake, Harry Potter) as senior citizens Bif and Saundra, who join a dance troupe and re-discover life, and love.
Bourgeois Saundra shows up at her bohemian sister Bif's doorstep after leaving her cheating husband. Bif lives in the projects, rides a bike, is politically active, and smokes pot with her handyman/dealer friend Charlie (Timothy Spall).

"I'm not like you, Bif," Saundra protests. "I just can't open up like a lotus flower." But she's humanized by her experiences throughout the film and the next time bad news hits her, she asks for a puff instead of a bottle, and begins to flower herself.
The still-impish Imrie, aged 66, admits to having smoked marijuana. Staunton, 62, says of the film, "At the very least, it’s an afternoon spent watching a gentle, feel-good story with a little bit of a cry. That’s not so bad.” Indeed, it's nice to see these fine actors in something other than a children's story, or a comic book.
Finding Your Feet was released earlier this year in Canada and can be found on Amazon Prime.
