Never Grow Old is a dark, gritty western from Irish writer/director Ivan Kavanagh. A trio of repugnant outlaws take over a bleak frontier town from the subdued townsfolk. A rare western where the undertaker (Emile Hirsch is a young man) central to the movie .
It is an unforgiving look at human nature. The rain and mud soaked setting matches the mood. It is a riveting tale with all the ingredients of good, bad and ugly. John Cusack has his best performance in years as the murderous badass.
But the main reason we’re able to show this exclusive ‘premiere’ is Tim Ahern. He’s an American actor living in Berkhamsted. But here he takes on the strong role of the broken down sheriff. You’ll have seen him around town, now come and watch him at work, in a strong, moving film. One chance. Don’t miss.
