Harold Fry's unlikely pilgrimage touches listeners with its indelible charm and poignant insights. Jim Broadbent is an ideal performance choice who achieves a remarkable mash-up of compassion, confusion, humor, determination, and cluelessness. Broadbent becomes Harold Fry, and everyone else Fry meets on his journey, as he crafts an irresistible listening experience. Harold's impulsive decision, both endearing and infuriating, prompts him to walk 600 miles across Britain as a symbolic farewell not only to his dying friend but also to the spirit of his past. He makes many new beguiling friends, who all validate his bizarre quest. Each new encounter seems to understand that memories, regrets, losses, and joys fuel his sense of urgency to abandon passivity and move forward. A.W.
