First screened in January 2016
Director: Tom Browne. Cast: Daniel Cerqueira, Richard Johnson, Gemma Jones, Julia Ford. Screenplay: Tom Browne and Daniel Cerqueira.

Twitter Capsule: Amour, but quintessentially English. Beckett's Happy Days, with a three-person family buried to their necks, but sweeter.

VOR:   Tricky to stride this fine line between studied realism and heightened effect. Certainly the cinema has not surfeited us with plausible, intimate studies of old age.
