That Good Night (12A)

Wales/2018/92mins/12a Dir: Eric Styles With: John Hurt, Sofia Helin

An ageing writer tries to make peace with his family as he comes to terms with his own mortality. 

Ralph, an ageing writer is terminally ill and keen to put his life in order before the close. He has things to do before he dies: to be reconciled with his long-abandoned son, Michael, and secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his devoted young wife, Anna. After an argument with Michael’s girlfriend Cassie all seems lost and Ralph receives the sinister and mysterious "Visitor" whose services he has hired to provide a painless ending to his life. But the Visitor plays a devastating trick. Ralph 'wakes up' to face the damaged potential that life still holds for him and with his second chance he has a short window of opportunity to right some wrongs.

"The beauty of Hurt’s complex performance is the helplessness in his eyes as his mouth spews its poisonous cruelty – he’s a hostage to what used to be wit but now just feels like petty spite…[he is] effortlessly excellent. "
