THE CARER (15)
Release: 5 August 2016
The Carer, made by Hungarian director Janos Edelenyi, is notable as a showcase for Brian Cox, who plays Sir Michael Gifford, a retired Shakespearean actor suffering from a form of Parkinson’s that has left him flailing and cantankerous at his country estate. He has alienated a host of caregivers, but his daughter forces a new companion on him, a Hungarian refugee who has acting aspirations of her own. It’s not hard to predict that a friendship will develop between the newcomer and the curmudgeon, a bond that threatens some of Sir Michael’s existing relationships but ultimately proves beneficial for all parties.
