It is deep Autumn and Sam and Tusker, partners of twenty years, are on holiday. They are travelling across England in their old campervan, visiting friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with young-onset dementia two years ago their lives have had to change. Jobs have been given up and plans put on hold. Their time together is now the most important thing they have. As the trip progresses however, their individual ideas for their future begin to collide. Secrets are uncovered, private plans unravel and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.
Starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci.
Written and directed by Harry Macqueen (Hinterland), and from the award-winning producers of 45 Years and I Am Not A Witch.
'The veteran pair are on magnificent form in a drama about love and mortality that is all the more powerful for its restraint' ★★★★The Guardian
'two of the strongest performances of this or any year' ★★★★The Times
'beautifully modulated drama that is unforced and naturalistic, perfectly played by two actors working at the peak of their charm and powers' ★★★★Empire
'British director Harry Macqueen’s latest film feels utterly honest and real. The film’s power lies not in its novelty, but in its delivery and identifiability. Each telling moment, whether big or small, connects unerringly. Its stardust finds us, and every particle feels like one of our own' ★★★★The Telegraph
'Firth and Tucci's performances are remarkable' Independent
