Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci shine as a long-term couple dealing with the onset of illness in this warm and tender drama. After twenty years together, Sam and Tusker’s blissful life has been shattered following Tusker’s diagnosis with early onset dementia. Intent on spending as much precious time together as they can, the pair travel across England in their old campervan, visiting loved ones and returning to special places from their past.
But as Sam and Tusker’s trip progresses and they are forced to confront the grave reality of their situation, rifts begin to emerge as they look at what the future may hold.Driven by two beautiful performances from Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as a couple with a long history and an uncertain future, Harry Macqueen’s (Hinterland) introspective road movie is a deeply affecting and quietly provocative exploration of love in the face of tragedy.
Supernova is screening at Watershed from Fri 25 June to Thu 8 July so make sure you watch the film in advance and then tune in on Mon 5 July at 19:00 for the discussion – we can’t wait to see you all.
