TERENCE Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave star in this tender comedy drama.

Crotchety Arthur (Terence Stamp) is married to Marion (Vanessa Redgrave). Much loved by her husband, Marion is dying of cancer and wants to get the maximum enjoyment out of life.

She sings in the local seniors chorus named The OAPZ – so named because the conductor Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) wants the chorus to sound ‘street’.

Elizabeth’s aim is to introduce the pensioners to contemporary music from artists like Gnarls Barkley as they prepare for an important Choir of the Year competition.

But when Marion is stricken by her illness and unable to participate, it falls to grumpy Arthur to step up to the plate. Will he be able to do his beloved wife proud?

The stage is set for a funny and moving story of reconciliation and the redemptive power of music, featuring the unforgettable image of elderly pensioners crooning Ace of Spades by Motorhead!
