23 Walks is a complex, tender and heart-warming comedy drama about finding love later in life. Dave (Dave Johns) and Fern (Alison Steadman), two older strangers, have been bruised by their individual circumstance. They meet walking their dogs in a North London park, and over the course of twenty-three walks together the romance begins to blossom. But Dave and Fern haven’t been completely honest with one another and their future together may be threatened by the secrets they have withheld.
Director Paul Morrison brings a light touch and a deft directorial hand to this film. The real joy of this tender love story is in its details, the beauty in the mundane, the quiet pain of those yearning for companionship. 23 Walks is a simple story powerfully told about two elderly people walking their dogs.
