A family reunion is planned to celebrate the 75th, and possibly last, birthday of Gordie (Billy Connolly). As his son Doug (David Tennant), and daughter-in-law, Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children begin the long drive to Wester Ross, it becomes clear that they have a secret to keep: Doug and Abi are on the verge of divorcing and they need the children to keep this a secret until the party is over – fearing it will spoil Grandad’s special birthday.

But the children share a very special relationship with their Grandad and not much can be kept from him. In particular he shares a passion for Viking culture with his grandson. The plot takes an unexpected twist when Grandad and the children enjoy a picnic together on the beach.

A charming family drama from the director of Outnumbered. And Wester Ross looks its gorgeous best.

“… heart-warming family comedy…” The Herald
“… the film broached genuinely unexpected comedic and emotional territory…” Time Out
