Is Anybody There? (2008) (C)
"A triumphant true gem of a film with Michael Caine giving one of the finest performances of his career."
Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com.
Ten-year-old Edward lives in his family-run retirement home.
While his mother struggles to keep the family business afloat and his father copes with the onset of a mid-life crisis, Edward leads an increasingly lonely existence.
Then, he meets Clarence (Michael Caine), a retired magician and grieving widower, who refuses to give in gracefully to old age.
The two strike up an unlikely friendship which helps them both remember that magic is possible when life is lived to its fullest. -- (C) BBC Films, 2008, UK.
