Oscar nominee 2023.
Living is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine to a shadow existence, who at the eleventh hour makes a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful.
What separates something like Living from the countless hokey “feel-good” films about men in their twilight years learning to love life again is not just its period setting and remarkable lead performance, but a more complicated structure.
Led by Bill Nighy’s perfect performance, Living is a movie that will leave you reflecting on the things you appreciate in your own life.
