Arthur (Stamp) is the grumpy husband of Marion (Redgrave), who is terminally ill yet continues to participate with enthusiasm at her local seniors’ choir. Arthur is unimpressed when the choir, led by mistress Elizabeth (Arterton) serenades the couple at their home. As Marion’s health deteriorates, Arthur is keen to please his dying wife and even agrees to take her place in the choir. The transition proves to be more trying for Arthur thanks to the unconventional songbook that includes racier songs such as Let’s Talk About Sex. Arthur’s experience in this new social environment will take him on a journey of self-discovery and thaw his bitterness, qualities that he will need in his imminent transition to life without Marion.
The movie is accompanied by a song titled “Unfinished Songs” written by Diane Warren and performed by Celine Dion.
