Directed by Harry Macqueen
Starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci
There are movies that you know so little about them, not seen a trailer and yet you want to see them. For me, I wanted to see the movie because of Tucci, he is a great actor.
The story is about Tusker and Sam. They have been together for 20 years and are taking a road trip to spend some time together before Tusker’s illness gets worse.
This film reminded me a bit of the movie Sideways, where two friends make road-trip. In this case, they are a couple. The movie is just that, is taking the journey with these two characters. The real conflict in the movie appears late film. But if you like films where it’s all about the characters and their journey, this is a good film. A beautiful love story that deals with fear, mortality, loss, and love.
The main thing the movie has and the main reason it works is Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci. Their performance is near perfect. They carry this story with such care and emotion that by the end we feel their pain and understand what they are going through.
