Critic Reviews for The Carer
It's a tired formula. But saving graces come from two fine performances, the criminally underrated Brian Cox as high-maintenance Sir Michael and newcomer Coco Konig as Dorottya, who's plucky, compassionate and wise.
The movie's virtues make it possible to watch with some pleasure, but its failings limit that pleasure, which certainly cannot make up for the flaws.
Konig, despite serving up one or two touching moments, rarely convinces either as a kindly carer or as an aspiring actress.
Those who love Shakespeare and great British acting should not pass up The Carer.
It's only a small step from Scent of a Woman, but Cox elevates it with one of his strongest performances.
This slender piece about a famous actor begrudgingly accepting his young caregiver as he's gradually succumbing to Parkinson's is sentimental and doesn't care much about character backstory or development. But it's entertaining as hell.
