Ellie (Hayley Atwell), a free-spirited and headstrong young woman, is left in charge of a retirement home over the Christmas holidays. Her youthful inexperience brings her into bitter conflict with the four grumpy old residents known as the "Hard Core": retired screen beauty Georgia (Vanessa Redgrave), spinster sisters Hazel (Imelda Staunton) and Heather (Brenda Fricker), and a reformed alcoholic judge, Donald (Joss Ackland). "How About You" follows the hilarious antics of these uncivilized seniors, the gradual close of the generation gap, and an unlikely romance. Based on a short story by Maeve Binchy.
