Director - Richard Eyre Producer- Damian Jones, Kevin Loader Executive Producer - Jenny Borgars, Rose Garnett, Alan Bennett, Cameron McCracken, Nicholas Hytner Andrea Scarso, Paul Grindey, Charles Moore. Russell Tovey plays Colin, a Department of Health consultant with precisely these prejudices who has to come and visit his ailing ex-miner dad Joe (David Bradley) at the Beth, a cantankerous old guy who has never been able to accept his son’s identity as a gay man. While the juxtaposition of the twist and the saccharine goings-on in the rest of the film is shocking, it also makes the lead-up to the concluding thesis feel toothless and non-committal in comparison, imbuing it with something of an identity crisis that compromises the effectiveness of its noble message.

When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back. Consumer Products by Snow Commerce, which is soley responsible for the site's content and all aspects of your purchase. ALLELUJAH is a British drama following the staff and patients at a hospital for the elderly in Yorkshire. This is very much by design, and an additional postscript added for this cinematic adaptation does its best to massage the ending into the cultural zeitgeist surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, but it does leave the experience as a whole feeling somewhat disjointed. Eyre’s all-star cast may shine in Allelujah, but even Dame Judi Dench can’t save a film whose third act so spectacularly nosedives into “Batshit-Craziest Story Choices Ever Put On Film Hall Of Fame” territory.Jam-packed with jokes about bedpans and the indignities of ageing, Eyre’s film lacks the needling sharpness of something like Jack Thorne’s scathing COVID drama Help, tip-toeing around the specifics of the NHS’ current crises until a powerful yet totally out-of-place pandemic set coda.

Suffice to say, however, such is the brain-frazzling, good faith-undoing, self-sabotaging severity of the left-turn this film takes, that when all’s said and done, words will likely fail you anyway. A trailer has debuted for the feature adaptation of Alan Bennett’s play Allelujah which will come to cinema screens in March of 2023. Coraline, Stick Man, Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires, The Boy in the Dress, Grandpa's Great Escape, Patrick, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Sumotherhood, Dawn French is a Huge Tw*t, Sing, Sing 2 and Death on the Nile are the popular movies of Jennifer Saunders.Photograph: Photo Credit: Rob Youngson/Rob Youngson View image in fullscreen ‘The ostensible purpose and meaning of the film is of course to proclaim the value of the NHS’ … Jennifer Saunders in Allelujah. Dench made headlines earlier this year after a letter she wrote was published in The Times, saying that each episode of The Crown should come with a disclaimer noting that it is a "fictional dramatisation". Featuring a powerhouse cast led by Jennifer Saunders and newcomer Bally Gill, supported by Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, David Bradley, Russell Tovey and Julia McKenzie, ALLELUJAH is a warm, humorous, and deeply moving story about surviving old age.

The film was released on 17 March 2023 by Pathé in France and Switzerland and in the United Kingdom through Warner Bros.

The place is run under the benignly imperious hand of "Sister Gilpin" (Jennifer Saunders) with Bally Gill's "Dr. By the film’s end, Dr Valentine is face-masked up in the middle of the pandemic, delivering a bone-rattling monologue about the state of the NHS after the most WTF third act twist we’ve seen since Jamie Dornan confessed a sincere belief that he was a honeybee in Wild Mountain Thyme. The ceremony to honour Alma is due to occur that day; before it starts, Mary takes Valentine to one side and shows him a video she took of Alma tending to Molly. The ostensible purpose and meaning of the film is of course to proclaim the value of the NHS, although you might argue that this faith is slightly deflected or undermined by the big narrative reveal – inspired by well-attested real life cases.

On paper, Allelujah sounds like — and has been very much marketed as — a ‘Clap For Carers’-esque proud paean to the NHS, housed within an ultimately crowd pleasing comedy-drama. Elsewhere on the ward, Judi Dench plays Mary, a retired librarian with a passion for cataloguing rather than books, but a keen interest in marginalia: the readers’ revealing scribbles at the side of the page.
