The film starts in cliché territory–literally an old grump of a man tells a group of kids to get off his lawn. This is our protagonist, Nigel, played to curmudgeonly perfection by iconic British thespian, Timothy Spall. Nigel is spiraling into human disrepair following the death of his wife, wallowing away in grief, booze, and filth. And, then, he meets an unexpected companion who disrupts his downward trajectory, veering him back on the “correct” path. Short of the Week This Time Away Retrieved 27th of January 2021.
