Year: 2018
Genre: Comedy, Drama and Mystery
Conclusion: 3/5
I thought that the script was very cleverly written by Frank Cottrell Boyce. This is a well written film combining themes of spirituality, tragedy, love and forgiveness all intertwined within each other. I do think that Bill Nighy’s Liverpudlian accent is spot on as it can’t be that easy to get right. Even though Bill Nighy’s character says that Marmite isn’t available in Canada, it has actually been available for quite a long time. As this is the director’s first feature length film I am really impressed with the film as a whole. I think he has done a pretty good job. I felt that there wasn’t much of a plot in the film but the story kept on moving and I never once felt bored or felt it was going slow. I found it to be a very gripping and moving film.
