The Graduate meets Harold And Maude in this rights of passage comedy from the writer of Her Majesty Mrs Brown. With yet another dreary school holiday coming around for the shy and downtrodden Ben (Rupert Grint), things couldn't get much worse. 17 years of living in an absurdly conservative and traditional household with his highly strung and overbearing mother (Laura Linney) and quiet, mild mannered vicar father have taken their toll on young Ben. However, Ben's world is turned upside down when he is employed by an eccentric retired actress, Evie (Julie Walters) during the school holidays. Evies unconventional and often downright bizarre behaviour challenges Bens beliefs and forces him to confront the very idea of who he wants to be. Julie Walters is a knockout in this role as a faded star with an acid tongue and Rupert Grint relishes the opportunity to play along side her in this warm tale of friendship, old-age and coming of age.
