Brian Cox stars in this funny and poignant drama as a curmudgeonly actor in the twilight of his life. Acclaimed for the performance of his career Cox receives stellar support from Emilia Fox and Anna Chancellor as he spars with his beguiling young Hungarian carer (newcomer Coco Konig). In the same vein as 'Quartet' and 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'. Sir Michael Gifford (Cox) is a retired Shakespearean actor suffering from a form of Parkinson's that has left him flailing and cantankerous at his country estate. He has alienated a host of caregivers, but his daughter forces a new companion on him, a Hungarian refugee who has acting aspirations of her own. A friendship develops between the newcomer and her charge, a bond that threatens some of Sir Michael's existing relationships but ultimately proves beneficial for all.
