Living (2022, D: Hermanus) S: Bill Nighy -- Ikiru remake

In select US theaters starting on December 23rd, 2022.

1953. A London shattered by WWII is still recovering. Williams (Bill Nighy), a veteran civil servant, is an impotent cog within the city’s bureaucracy as it struggles to rebuild. Buried under paperwork at the office, lonely at home, his life has long felt empty and meaningless. Then a shattering medical diagnosis forces him to take stock – and to try and grasp fulfillment before it goes beyond reach.
Reviews from Sundance were extremely positive: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/living_2022

Ikiru is great. Nighy seems like the perfect actor for this, if it has to exist. I'll watch it.

Yeah I saw Ikiru when i was young but really enjoyed it. I'm a huge Bill Nighy fan and I think he does great in these "tragic lonely guy trying to make things right" roles. So that, it being an Ikiru remake, and the post WWII setting seem a perfect mix for me to enjoy.

I see this is starting to play in some of my local theatres this weekend.

Nighy received a Lead Actor Oscar nomination.
