Overwhelmed at work and lonely at home, a council bureaucrat’s life takes a heartbreaking turn when a medical diagnosis tells him his time is short.
Influenced by a local decadent and a vibrant woman, he continues to search for meaning until a simple revelation gives him a purpose to create a legacy for the next generation.
“Bill Nighy is perfectly cast as Williams, a man of his time painfully incapable of expressing his emotions. The script and the direction beautifully capture the austerity and self-restraint of post war Britain. This is a splendid evocation of a desperately ordinary man whose small life has an important impact on other people’s lives, including ours, the viewers. Less is more – much more“ – David Gee – IMDB Review
