About the Movie
Life for the unassuming John May (Eddie Marsan) has always revolved around his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified exit, and writes eulogies and organizes funerals for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case – an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own – hits him harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long-abandoned daughter (Joanne Froggatt). Against the odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other – and John's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: You may scold yourself for investing any emotion at all in hokum that even Mr. Marsan, for all his kindly gravity, can't begin to salvage.
Fresh: Pasolini has a gem in Marsan, a virtuoso actor who plays the role delicately where another might have laid on the pathos too thick.
Fresh: A soulful if obvious meditation on lives lived unshared, and one man's dedication to righting those wrongs while neglecting his own life.
Fresh: This is a gentle, well-observed drama with a very likeable performance from Marsan.
Mr. Bean on Ritalin
Some humor. Pretty good. Seeing the main character I can't stop thinking about a Mr. Bean minus the humor and being high strung. Same Mr. Bean quirkiness though. Haha.
