Based on a story by Irish author Maeve Binchy, HOW ABOUT YOU tells the story of Ellie (Hayley Atwell), who through a series of events gets left in charge of a residential home, “Woodlane”, over the Christmas period.  Looking after the home proves to be a mammoth task for Ellie as the four cranky residents known as the “hardcore”, Georgia (Vanessa Redgrave), Hazel (Imelda Staunton), Heather (Brenda Fricker) and Donald (Joss Ackland), have all led interesting lives but now in their twilight years they have become impossible to live with - rude and objectionable.  Between them they have managed to scare away most of the other residents and help bring the home almost to the point of collapse.

“A vehicle for a cluster of veteran acting talent comes rarely and How About You, adapted from a short story by popular Irish novelist Maeve Binchy, rollicks along with the superb combination of Vanessa Redgrave, Imelda Staunton, Brenda Fricker and Joss Ackland.”
