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.

  • 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.

  • We are so used to seeing Aidan Gillen playing power-wielding politicos that it's almost disconcerting to see how comfortably he inhabits the skin of a character hurtling towards rock bottom in Still.

  • The title is about as forgettable as the film.

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

  • While the intimate portrayal of Tom's grief seeks to explore the contradictions of his psychology, the social commentary feels disproportionately simplistic.

  • 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.
