Nominated for the Oscars for Best Actor (Bill Nighy) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Kazuo Ishiguro).

Bill Nighy stars as Mr Williams, a withdrawn widower and bureaucrat living in 1953 London who has spent his life existing from day to day, not happy but not sad, disconnected from everything and everyone around him.

When he learns that he doesn’t have long to live, Mr Williams decides to make the most of the time he has left, although he doesn’t quite remember how. Disregarding his stuffy office and its towers of paperwork, he steps out into a world long forgotten. There he will make unknown journeys and form the unlikeliest connections, all in the hope that may finally at the very end get a chance to live a little.

Bill Nighy gives the performance of his career in this poignant period drama written by Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro, and adapted from the film Ikiru (To Live) by Akira Kurosawa.

“addresses weighty matters of life and death with a winning simplicity that is hard to resist” The Observer

“an immensely moving memento mori, anchored by Nighy’s breathtaking performance, and a call to live a life with purpose” Vox

“a wonderful showpiece for Nighy, who is as affecting as you’ve ever seen him.” Vogue

“An absolutely gorgeous, heartbreaking piece of work.” Rolling Stone
