Bill Nighy is Scrabble genius Alan in this off-beat comedy-drama. Called to identify his long missing son, he and his other son Peter (Sam Riley) head off on a road trip to the morgue, stirring old grievances and some deadly word play.
Written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce ('24 Hour Party People'), this is an whimsical and warm treat that offers a distinctly British take on family affairs, with some terrific performances from Jenny Agutter and Alice Lowe.
★★★★ "Elegant, offbeat comedy-drama." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
