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.

The human interaction, alas, remains hidebound: it's another of those scripts about a writer where the protagonist has been developed at everybody else's expense.

Passes muster strictly as a showcase for Hurt and Dance.

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

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.

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.
