Full film details

Deciding to move to a Sun Springs retirement home, Martha (Diane Keaton) plans on spending the rest of her life enjoying some well-earned peace. When she meets the excitable Sheryl (Jackie Weaver), though, her dream of a quiet life looks unlikely.

The pair of retirees hit it off straight away, and the two begin to share memories from their youth. As Martha reveals that she used to love cheerleading, but had to give it up long ago, Sheryl suggests she start up again…

As the wacky idea gains ground, news of try-outs for a Sun Springs squad quickly spreads across the retirement home and for the first time in years the OAPs begin to believe they can achieve greatness.

Before long, however, the difficult dream becomes a daunting reality as the squad enters a regional competition. Squaring off against much fitter, younger and agile opposition, they must enlist the help of young mentor Chloe (Alisha Boe) if they’re to overcome the greatest challenge and prove to themselves and everyone else that age is no barrier to success.

Directed by Zara Hayes, this feel-good comedy stars Diane Keaton (Book Club, Hampstead, The Family Stone), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom, Stoker) and Celia Weston (Freak Show, In the Radiant City, Knight and Day), each proving you’re never too old to achieve your goals.
