Sir John Hurt’s final film role sees the actor confront the dying of the light in director Eric Styles’ poignant drama.


Hurt plays Ralph Maitland, a celebrated screenwriter in his seventies living out his days in sun-dappled Portugal with his long-suffering, eternally patient wife Anna (Sofia Helin). After a routine health check reveals bad news, he vows to get his affairs in order, with no intention of going “gentle into that good night.”


His last will and testament made and his mind set on a course of action, he invites his son to visit for a final attempt at reconciliation yet when Michael (Max Brown) arrives with girlfriend Cassie (Erin Richards) in tow, the warning that his imperious father, generous with his money but never his affection, threatens to ring true once again.


Surrounded by a beautifully complex array of characters, Hurt cuts a stark figure. There is no vanity in this performance, instead a reflection on his own frailty and yet, mellowed by age and circumstance, defiantly Hurt is as talented, vibrant and lovable in his last moments as he ever was in any filmå. (Research Chris Coetsee) A glimpse of this knighted actor’s poignant endgame.
