"The camera is used with great wit and confidence, allowing the story and characters to unfold with elegant pace and to capture the beauty of an intimate world.” - Royal Television Society 

 

"A Wee Night In is a poetic and picturesque portrait of love by Stuart Edwards which captures a space threaded with time and emotions, in a very emphatic and funny way, with amazing cinematography which turns it into a touching documentary film." - Student International Film Festival 

 

 

S Y N O P S I S : 

 

In a quiet street in East Kilbride, life moves slowly for the frail but feisty 95-year-old Chrissy, who still carries out her daily tasks to keep herself busy and active. She awaits the arrival of Bill, her 91-year-old boyfriend. An intimate, heartwarming portrait of love in old age.
