From IMDb: “An English-language adaptation of the script of “Ikiru” (1952), set in London in the 1950s.”

Poster Rating: C

Review: For a film about living an extraordinary life, this design is utterly and irrevocably ordinary and uninspired.

Trailer Rating: B- / B-

Review: (#1) The repetitiveness of the daily actions makes the case for breaking out of one’s shell, but a lot of the fun times presented late in the trailer don’t seem nearly that exciting and Bill Nighy is never given enough to do.

(#2) There’s not a lot of difference between the prior trailer and this one. They both feel the same and seem about the same subject. While this one does a worse job of conveying the repetitiveness of Nighy’s character, it gets to the same point.

Oscar Prospects:

Some have put down Bill Nighy for Oscar consideration, but I have a hard time seeing that as a possibility for something that looks like a trifle.
