Sir John Hurt, beloved QUAD patron and Derby Film Festival Guest Of Honour in 2014, played his final leading role in this drama as Ralph, a formerly successful screenwriter now resident in Portugal. Ralph is terminally ill and as he faces what he refers to as “the ultimate deadline” he has two goals, to not be a burden to his wife Anna and to repair his relationship with his son Michael. Hurt’s performance is excellent, as expected, and he is ably supported by a cast that includes Sofia Helin, Max Brown and Charles Dance as an enigmatic visitor who could be the grim reaper himself.

Also screening as a preview during Derby Film Festival with introduction from Sir John Hurt's widow Anwen. Wednesday 9th May at 6:30pm. Tickets for this event can be booked here.
