The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the audience and critically-acclaimed new film “Edie”! Believing that it’s never too late, newly widowed Edie embarks on a trip to the Scottish Highlands. Determined to  fulfill her dream of climbing the intimidating Mt. Suilven, striking up a friendship with a young climber along the way.

Following the death of her husband, Edie breaks free from years of his control and rebels against her daughter’s wish for her to move into assisted living.  Embarking on an adventure she and her father had always longed for: a trip to the Scottish Highlands to climb the world famous Mt. Suilven. Along the way, she hires young camping shop owner Jonny to be her guide. Despite the generational differences between them, Jonny encourages Edie to fulfill her dream.

About Actress Sheila Hancock

“At the very start of the writing process I knew we had to find an actress of enormous talent, but also someone who could actually climb the mountain that was at the center of our tale,” said director Simon Hunter. “How would I get an 83 year-old actress up a mountain in Sutherland? I remember the day I mentioned Sheila Hancock to our casting director Jeremy Zimmerman and he replied ‘I’ve just seen her on stage in Grey Gardens and she was bouncing around like an eighteen-year-old.’ That’s who we want for Edie”

“A couple of months later, Sheila was embarking on a 14-kilometer trek to the base of Mt. Suilven followed by an extremely tough assent on a very steep ridge. Sheila was determined; I could see it in her eyes when I first met her. She was determined — and I mean bloody determined!”
