That Good Night (12A)
Directed by Eric Styles, 1hr 32 mins, 2017
With John Hurt, Charles Dance, Sofia Helin
This was John Hurt’s final and heart-rending performance, as Ralph, a once-famous screenwriter. In his 70s and terminally ill, he wrestles with going gently into that good night. He is determined to not be a burden to his wife, and to be reconciled to his son, but is there time for either of these ambitions? This is a powerful and profound examination of life just before death.
We are honoured and grateful that John Hurt’s widow, Anwen Hurt has agreed to be with us to give a brief introduction to the evening screening.
