Movie Info

Ralph, a once famous writer is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has things to do before he dies: to be reconciled with his long-abandoned son, Michael, and secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his devoted young wife, Anna, as he goes 'into that good night.' But Ralph ruins all hope of reconciliation when he picks a fight with Michael's girlfriend, Cassie. Later, alone, Ralph receives the sinister and mysterious "Visitor" whose services he has hired to provide a painless ending to his life. But the Visitor plays a devastating trick. Ralph 'wakes up' to face the damaged potential that life still holds for him and with his second chance he has a short window of opportunity to right some wrongs.

Passes muster strictly as a showcase for Hurt and Dance.

July 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The film never feels truly worthy of Hurt's talents and doesn't utilise his abilities as well as it could have done.

August 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Hurt is excellent.

May 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Charles Savage's script is hampered by a weak, predictable storyline...There is the inevitable pleasure to be had in Hurt's charismatic presence, but Ralph is two-dimensional and we never get a real sense of his kinder side.

May 17, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The context provided by Eric Styles's film (from a play by NJ Crisp) is pretty thin - the ailing codger reconnecting with his estranged son - but Hurt is engaging and a couple of scenes have punch.

May 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The beauty of Hurt's complex performance is the helplessness in his eyes as his mouth spews its poisonous cruelty - he's a hostage to what used to be wit but now just feels like petty spite.
