Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A good film enjoyed by the audience

A very well-crafted film. Beautifully written and directed. Superb performances from Bening and Bell and fine support. Had a profound effect on many of the audience.

At first glance not too much to this film; faded Hollywood star and young man from Liverpool fall in love. But the acting from the 2 leads was superb, and it is worth seeing for their performances alone.
