Eddie Marsan gives a wonderfully restrained performance in this poignant, beautifully crafted film from director Uberto Pasolini (producer of The Full Monty). He is unassuming council worker John May, whose job it is to locate the next of kin of people who die alone in the South London area. Approaching his work like a meticulous detective, May can’t meet the council’s new targets and is to be made redundant following his final case: tracking down the family of his elderly neighbour, Billy Stoakes. We follow John as he travels outside of the city to track down Billy’s family, uncovering a life of mischief, misadventure, love and regret.
“Speckled with many poignant and shrewd little visual touches about what solitude feels like” *** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
