Living (12A) (AD)

A man and woman sit together having a chat

An ailing bureaucrat in 50s London attempts to break out of the monotony of his life, before it is too late to make a change. 

William (Bill Nighy), a cog in 1950s London's bureaucracy, lives a life of endless monotony. One day, he receives shocking news that knocks him out of his malaise and forces him into a journey of discovery, as he attempts to grasp fulfilment before it goes beyond reach.

Based on Kazuo Ishiguro's screenplay, adapted from Akira Kurosawa's 1952 film Ikiru.
