A true love story.

Based on the true story of a Hove pensioner who absconds from his care home to pay respects to the fallen soldiers in the D-Day landings, this 5 star masterpiece pairs screen legends Michael Caine (Bernard) and Glenda Jackson (Irene) in her last performance.

The sharp and witty script will bring a tear to your eye as the couple reflect upon 60 years together, and of loss, love and enduring human spirit. A fitting finale to Glenda Jackson’s wonderful contribution to British cinema.

Cert 12A. 96 mins. Subtitled.
