Description

There are no prizes for guessing if Colin’s attitude to both the hospital and his dad is going to thaw – and indeed his initial, shrill attachment to the government line is rather broadly written. Valentine deduces that Alma has been poisoning the most frail residents by lacing their night-time cups of warm milk with morphine.

Allelujah is the first film to be adapted from one of Bennett's works since 2015's The Lady in the Van, which starred Maggie Smith and was based on Bennett's memoir. 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. Allelujah had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival on 11 September 2022, and was released in the United Kingdom on 17 March 2023, by Warner Bros.The film is constantly compromised by its attempts to barb its bouquets of community cutesiness with polemical punches.

Conservative management consultant Colin (Russell Tovey) is visiting the Beth to inspect it ahead of its impending closure, and it’s up to the staff, including the idealistic Dr Valentine (Bally Gill) and head nurse Sister Gilpin (Jennifer Saunders), to win him over and save the hospital. At the same time, Colin Colman, a consultant to the Health Secretary, arrives at the Beth, whose closure he had advised, to visit his father Joe and assess the hospital. Perhaps the thought of a veteran Brit character-actor lineup in a care setting is a little mawkish, and I incidentally still have grim memories of Dustin Hoffman’s unsufferably patronising 2012 film Quartet with Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon. Allelujah celebrates the spirit of the elderly patients whilst paying tribute to the deep humanity of the medical staff battling with limited resources and ever-growing demand.
