Bill Nighy stars, to high critical acclaim, as a veteran civil servant receives a medical diagnosis that inspires him to move to the south coast and cram some fun into his remaining days. He meets a sunny young female colleague who seems to have the pep that had previously escaped him.

Directed by Oliver Hermanus from a screenplay by Nobel Literature Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro, adapted from the 1952 Japanese film Ikiru directed by Akira Kurosawa, which in turn was inspired by the 1886 Russian novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy.

Living has been receiving 5-star reviews and huge critical acclaim, especially for Bill Nighy’s exquisitely sensitive performance.
