D. János Edelényi

When the question is to be or not to be, there is only one answer…

English theatrical knight, Sir Michael Gifford (Brian Cox) once bestrode the classical stage like a colossus. He was a hellraiser, womanizer and mesmerizing star. Now he is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and trapped in an increasingly rebellious body. But Michael is not going quietly: he insults everyone around him and sacks every caregiver in cautious enough to accept employment.

Having ejected all previous would be carers, his daughter spearheads an intervention that sees Dorottya (Coco König) – a young Hungarian home help with acting aspirations of her own – tasked with the job of tending to this aging thespian grump.

What blossoms between these two kindred spirits is a funny and heart-warming tale on the acceptance of one’s own mortality.
