A warm, humorous, and deeply moving story about surviving old age.

When the geriatric ward of a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back by galvanizing the local community. They invite a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of the hospital’s most distinguished nurse. What could go wrong?

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. But in the midst of the tears and the laughter, we slowly realise that there is something threatening the hospital that is far more lethal than the politicians demanding efficiency at any cost…

Written by Heidi Thomas based on the play of the same name by Alan Bennett, Allelujah is directed by Richard Eyre and stars:  Jennifer Saunders, Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, David Bradley, Julia McKenzie, Russell Tovey and Bally Gill


“A rousing pot banging success” – Daily Telegraph

“Jennifer Saunders delivers a career high performance” – The Times

” Simply wonderful “- Saga

“The iron fist in the velvet glove does not really sum up Alan Bennett’s style. While he’s one of Britain’s most admired satirists with a sharp ear for the vernacular and a keen eye for the oddest aspects of being English, his affection for his characters is never in doubt.

He can make you laugh and cry in the space of two sentences, but this film of his play Allelujah shows him at his most political and polemical.”
