MPM FILM - as PROD

Drama - Completed 2012

"A film about getting old, getting by, mortality, isolation – and the consolations of art, and the pleasures to be found in small everyday things. It’s also a film of considerable conceptual sophistication and emotional and moral intelligence, and shouldn't be missed." SIGHT & SOUND
