Joan (Lesley Manville) and Tom (Liam Neeson) are a long-married couple settled in their ways, enjoying brisk walks at sunset and playful bickering. Then Joan discovers a lump in her breast, which starts a chain of events that threatens to change their relationship completely.
Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn’s follow up to the celebrated Good Vibrations is this convincing, affecting love story and it is a filmmaking masterclass on every level. The script – by Northern Irish playwright Owen McCafferty – is smart and beautifully observed, the direction is fittingly patient and unobtrusive, while the performances by the two lead actors are impeccable.
