"A gentle, exquisitely sad film."
★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Nighy gives one of the finest (not to say subtlest) performances of his career to date." 
★★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"Nighy has never been better than in this richly rewarding '50s-set drama about a repressed and terminally ill man who discovers life just as it comes to an end.
★★★★★ Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"A director rising into the highest ranks and an actor at the peak of his powers are the keys to this mesmerising melodrama set in London in the 1950s."
★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times (UK)
