Synopsis

Location: Alhambra

Ray Winstone plays the Alzheimer’s-afflicted Frank, a previously formidable man confined to a residential home, a shadow of his former self. James (Jim Sturgess), after many months of searching, finally finds his father figure and breaks him loose from a nursing home, beginning a rather dangerous road trip laced with gallows humour. However, with Frank’s mind failing and James’ motives unclear, the film gradually unravels the past of both.

‘Whitecross has created a film with a strong vision that, by and large, it executes engagingly well.’ Take One; Jim Ross
