Movie Review: Supernova (2020)

Title: Supernova
Release Date: 22 September 2020
Director: Harry Macqueen
Production Company: British Film Institute | BBC Films | Quiddity Films | The Bureau

A long-time couple, Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci) make a trip to England’s Lakes District in a camper van. Tusker has been diagnosed with early onset dementia and this is a final chance to visit with family, while Sam, a concert pianist, also performs a recital. It’s a deeply moving movie about love, loss, and letting go when dealing with end-of-life issues. Some terrific acting, beautiful scenery, and some humorous moments help alleviate the deep feels this movie prompts.

Rating: ****
