Its roles like these that win Oscars
21 September 2017 | by michaeljtrubicSee all my reviews

Larger than life characters like this one are what talented actors are on the lookout for.

Helena Bonham Carter hit it out of the park with this.

One of two excellent films about mental illness at 2017 Tiff.

Very moving story and well defined characters.

Sadly, based on a story that is unfortunately very much true.

We were very fortunate to have the cast and real life personalities at my screening for an extensive Q&A - thanks to all for coming.

Particularly hopeful was learning that the central characters are still engaged in improving the quality of life for older people living in retirement and old-age institutions.
