Resolved Question: Emma Thompson Movie?
My parents are looking for movie with Emma Thompson. She looked a bit old and the only thing they remember is a scene where Emma's character offers food to her husband and he refuses. He ends up the attic looking for a train set and when Emma's character finds him there, the husband tells her that he had imagined his grandkid coming over and he building the train set for the kid. Emma's character tells him to stop dreaming and the husband starts building the train set.
