The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley

Feature Film UK 2010

Joan is a middle-aged woman with a dull, colourless life: she devotes herself totally to work and to her invalid mother. Singing is the only thing that makes her happy; she has an amazing singing voice which no-one has ever heard. One day Pat, the nurse who looks after Joan's mother, hears Joan singing and falls in love with her and her voice and therefore invites her to join her women's choir. Joan accepts but when she finds out what kind of choir this is ? a lesbian choir ? she beats a hasty retreat. But what can she do when her passion for singing is so irresistible and the only alternative is the fusty old church choir? Thanks to her growing intimacy with Pat, Joan finally finds the courage to overcome her fears and to reveal her voice. She discovers, though, that the choir is planning to perform in public for a GLBT festival; her shyness and the ghosts of her puritanical education are seriously put to the test. A simple and moving story, The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley is about the triumph of love, loyalty and music.
