Seen at the Frightfest Film Festival in London, 2018. Before the film started there was a brief Question and Answer with Aidan Turner, Caitlin FitzGerald and director Robert D. Krzykowski. In this film I thought Aidan Turner was brilliant, but then I could watch him do anything. He has got such a strong presence. Even though Sam Elliott was in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) he has not had a major role in a film. Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood, 2014) has a little cameo but great to see him get work. This is Robert D. Krsykowski’s directorial debut and considering this I was pleasantly surprised. I very much enjoyed the music by composer Joe Kraemer which was very well written. The going back to the past and then coming back to the present I thought worked well. Aidan Turner playing the young Calvin Barr and Sam Elliott playing the older guy. Half way through the film I did think the plot lost its way. As much as I enjoyed this film, I still felt that there were a lot of clumsy moves script and scene wise. One of the many themes that the film concentrates on is loneliness, which we experience through an old guy who is looking back on his life.
