Critic Consensus: Edie often reduces a remarkable story to a rather ordinary viewing experience, but it's elevated considerably by Sheila Hancock's work in the title role.

Critic Reviews for Edie
There are two stunningly beautiful sights in Edie, about an 83-year-old woman who wants to climb a mountain. The first is the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish countryside...the second is the lovely face of actress Sheila Hancock...
The growing friendship between Edie and Jonny has an understated but very genuine warmth.
Something tells me a documentary on Hancock simply navigating the rigors of "Edie," as well as acting it to the fullest, might have been more readily inspiring.
The story in "Edie" may get sidetracked from time to time, but Hancock never does, with a focus every bit the equal of her character's, if not more so.
Hancock is wasted here, as are the meaty dramatic threads that Elizabeth O'Halloran's formulaic screenplay never bothers to pull.
