Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont

    Mrs. Palfrey (Joan Plowright), an elegant, genteel widow, has come from Scotland to London to take up residence at the Claremont Hotel. Though she had high hopes for the cosmopolitan pleasures of living in a big city, she is soon filled with a sense of uneasiness and gloom. As days turn into weeks, it becomes apparent to an increasingly lonely Mrs. Palfrey that her grandson, though well aware of her move to London, has neither the time nor the desire to visit her.


    When Mrs. Palfrey falls in the street she is rescued by Ludo (Rupert Friend), a struggling young writer-cum-street-musician. The two newly found friends discover they have a lot more in common with each other than they do with people their own ages. In Mrs. Palfrey, the young writer finds the story he has been looking for his whole life, and Mrs. Palfrey finds the 'grandson' she never knew she had. Based on the best selling novel by the late, celebrated English Author, Elizabeth Taylor.
