Movie Info

Careworn teacher Daniel is summoned by his elderly mother Mariah to his parents' remote, rubbish-filled, ramshackle cottage, where his infirm and incontinent father, Leonard, is refusing to move from the sofa. Disapproved of as a failure by his irascible, demanding father, Daniel eventually persuades Leonard into a specially adapted bed and the care of a visiting nurse.

Some of the acting is awkward, but this is a moving story made with compassion.

One of the best British films of the year.

This is a small-scale but delicately crafted and moving family drama, lent an extra resonance by the fact that it features the final performance from Richard Johnson, who died in June.

A moving and often brutally effective disquisition on the ageing process, on senility and dementia, and how families are regularly wrenched apart by the same.

Browne's directorial feature debut has an unmistakable air of authenticity that brings real pathos and heartache to some of the film's bleakest moments.
