Oscar Nominated for Best Actor (Bill Nighy) and Best Adapted Screenplay

The story of an ordinary man, played by Bill Nighy, in 1950s London, 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. From a screenplay by Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature Kazuo Ishiguro, and based on the 1952 Japanese film Ikiru directed by Akira Kurosawa, which was in turn  based on The Death of Ivan Ilyich by  Leo Tolstoy. (PG-13, 1h 42m)

Nighy makes it look effortless; he gives an Oscar-worthy performance that made me cry almost as much as Takashi Shimura did in Kurosawa’s classic.” – Odie Henderson, Boston Globe

The highest compliment I can pay Living is that it takes those dusty ideas and makes them resonate once more. Not unlike remembering an old, familiar song, and understanding it for the first time.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/ Vulture

“Bill Nighy delivers a master class in acting as a stifled Brit bureaucrat who decides to seize the day before it’s too late. Working in miniature to achieve major truths, this deeply human drama has the power to sneak up and knock you sideways.” – Peter Travers, ABC News
