TOGETHER is a powerful drama about an elderly couple who get separated into different care homes against their will. ​ Inspired by real life stories of elderly couples caught up in the social services system, writer and director Paul Duddridge wanted to shed light on the bureaucracy of the care system, and how the wishes of older people are ignored. ​ After 60 years of marriage, Rosemary (Sylvia Syms) and Philip Twain (Peter Bowles) are happily sharing their golden years taking care of one another. However, when Rosemary is taken to hospital for a routine procedure their perfect retirement starts to unravel. Philip is admitted to a care home and even when his wife is returned to the marital home he is not allowed to join her. Frustrated by the system they take their lives in to their own hands and fight back. All they want is to be together!

  • ["Together"] is burdened by an overliteral screenplay, some howling supporting turns and an unfortunate corporate-video aesthetic.

  • It's hard to get a steer on how to read the film's intentions, especially when it zigzags between ruthless, dryly rendered satire and absurdly unconvincing courtroom scenes backed by soppy music.

  • Great message, shame about the messenger, because this is shot, directed, edited, scored and written in the flat, dull style of an infomercial.

  • A tinkly piano soundtrack doesn't help the manipulative mood, nor does the poorly handled revelations about the couple's early life together.
