Brief Synopsis – A couple goes on a road trip together before one of them succumbs to his illness of early onset dementia.
My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been interested in seeing ever since I heard about it last summer.
The lead duo of Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci seemed too good to be true and I eagerly awaited getting the chance to check this one out.
They both have great chemistry together ad that helps make their long terr relationship feel even more genuine and plausible which is great.
They have some very tender and believable m]scenes together that helps establish the kind of relationship that these men have and make it realistic to think that they have been together for so long.
The story itself is great and has so much more potential but the execution unfortunately leaves too much to wish for as things play out.
The characters and their relationship are developed well, but not deep enough which is a shame because of how essential that needs to be for a personal drama like this one.
The dialogue is written really well and helps make the story engaging to watch as things progress in unknown directions.
The character’s connections to celestial bodies works really well and helps keep things in a more focused trajectory.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Colin Firth did his own piano playing. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
