Upsetting scenes occur in which characters deal with illness, old age, and the death of loved ones - as well as their own fear of death. She said: "Sir John Major is not alone in his concerns that the latest series of The Crown will present an inaccurate and hurtful account of history. More genuinely bookish is the haughty former teacher Ambrose (he prefers the antique word “schoolmaster”) played by Derek Jacobi who broods over the Charles Causley poem Ten Types Of Hospital Visitor. Indeed, the closer the drama comes to our present times, the more freely it seems willing to blur the lines between historical accuracy and crude sensationalism. language Infrequent strong language ('f**k') occurs, along with use of milder terms including 'twat', bloody', 'bugger', 'shit' and 'sod'.

Jennifer Saunders, Bally Gill, Russell Tovey, David Bradley, Derek Jacobi, and Judi Dench are among the cast of the film, which is directed by Richard Eyre. When The Beth, a geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital, comes under threat of closure due to continuing NHS cuts, staff and residents alike — spearheaded by Sister Gilpin (Jennifer Saunders) and Dr Valentine (Bally Gill) — band together to fight for the hospital’s future.But the new Covid section at the end, with its unexpected pivot to drama and crisis, works well enough. Humble, unglamorous geriatric care is however about vulnerable patients who are heading just one way, and their treatment crucially involves kindness and compassion which have nothing to do with the bottom line. ALLELUJAH is a British drama following the staff and patients at a hospital for the elderly in Yorkshire. The film was released on 17 March 2023 by Pathé in France and Switzerland and in the United Kingdom through Warner Bros.

When a small geriatric hospital in Northern England is threatened with closure, the staff and patients rally together to try and save it. 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.Dench made headlines earlier this year after a letter she wrote was published in The Times, saying that each episode of The Crown should come with a disclaimer noting that it is a "fictional dramatisation". When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back by galvanising the local community: they invite a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of the hospital's most distinguished nurse. all content and information unless pertaining to companies, studios or advertisers included on this site, and to movies, TV series and cinemas listed on this site. She is found dead the next morning, and the Beth is threatened with legal action by her daughter and son-in-law, who were due to inherit her home only three months later.

While the juxtaposition of the twist and the saccharine goings-on in the rest of the film is shocking, it also makes the lead-up to the concluding thesis feel toothless and non-committal in comparison, imbuing it with something of an identity crisis that compromises the effectiveness of its noble message. On paper, Allelujah sounds like — and has been very much marketed as — a ‘Clap For Carers’-esque proud paean to the NHS, housed within an ultimately crowd pleasing comedy-drama.

The place is run under the benignly imperious hand of "Sister Gilpin" (Jennifer Saunders) with Bally Gill's "Dr.This is very much by design, and an additional postscript added for this cinematic adaptation does its best to massage the ending into the cultural zeitgeist surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, but it does leave the experience as a whole feeling somewhat disjointed. 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.
