Synopsis / Plot
Maurice (Peter O'Toole), Ian (Leslie Phillips) and Donald (Richard Griffiths) are three semi-ancient retirees who meet every day at their favourite pub to raise a glass, commiserate about the state of the world and trade good-natured barbs. Age has slowed their bodies but not their agile minds. The film begins with the somewhat old-maidish Ian eagerly awaiting the arrival of his niece's teenaged daughter, who is coming to care for him. When she arrives, the cheeky, chip-eating Jessie (Jodie Whittaker) is the opposite of what he had expected
