LIVING Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Opening January 27, the Rehoboth Bach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents Living, a post-World War II London drama directed by Oliver Hernanus from a screenplay by Kazuo Iahiguro, a loose adaptation of the 1952 Japanese film Ikiri (“To Live”). An Oscar contender, Living is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine and a shadow existence discovers in the eleventh hour, the need to make a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful. Oscar nominated for Best Lead Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.
A veteran civil servant (Bill Nighy) receives a medical diagnosis that inspires him to move to the south coast and cram some fun into his remaining days. He meets a sunny young female colleague who seems to have the pep that had previously escaped him. [2022, UK, 113 min, Rating: PG-13]
Tim Cogshell of FilmWeek exclaims, “I love this film. Probably one of my favorites of the year.”
