When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years (John Sessions) is having an affair with her best friend (Josie Lawrence) she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling who lives on an inner-city council estate.[2] But different is just what Sandra needs and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class where she meets her sister's friends, Charlie (Timothy Spall), Jackie (Joanna Lumley) and Ted (David Hayman). This colorful group of defiant and energetic third-agers start to show Sandra that retirement is in fact only the beginning, and that divorce might just give her a whole new lease of life and love.



The film was announced at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and started shooting on October 31, 2016, in London and Rome.[3] The film wrapped on December 16, 2016.[4] The film will be released nationwide in the United Kingdom and Ireland on February 23, 2018. Roadside Attractions picked up the U.S distribution rights and will release the film theatrically in America on March 30th, 2017. Roadside Attractions co-founders Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff said: "Finding Your Feet is one of Richard Loncraine’s best. It is brilliantly acted and completely endearing, emotional and delightfully charming and funny from start to finish. It is the kind of feel-good, character rich, second chance at life comedy that we absolutely love."[5]
