Movie Info

Set in London this film is a haunting, deeply moving and disturbing film about the journey which, as a parent, we hope we will never have to make. Tom Carver is a man stumbling blindly towards a crossroads in his life, thrown out of focus by the death of his teenage son a year earlier in a car accident. He becomes involved in a feud with a teenage gang after a seemingly harmless collision with a young kid. This feud becomes gradually more disturbing and horrifying as Carver's life starts to unravel until its painful and shattering climax.

Critic Reviews for Still

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

A film which is desperate to make a grand statement about the awful toll of isolation but falls short of its ambitions.

Gillen portrays Carver as a somewhat latter-day Hamlet; an essentially benevolent man who struggles to retain his sanity as he seeks to apprehend his bizarre, fragmented reality through grief and psychological hostility.

Writer/director Simon Blake's provocative debut feature taps into society's collective fear of young people in a way that will resonate with anyone who has ever lived in a major city.

Still marks a creatively inclined project for Simon Blake, who cannot be faulted for his aptitude for ingenuity, with a palpable attempt to be experimental in his means of storytelling.

Not only is Still an intense look at a father's tragic descent into madness over losing his son, but it's also a surprisingly, extremely competent film from first-time director Simon Blake.
