Product description

Mike Mills writes and directs this semi-autobiographical comedy drama starring Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer. The film finds 30-something graphic designer and commitment-phobe Oliver (McGregor) in a period of transition, having recently lost both parents. Oliver particularly struggles with the legacy of his father, Hal (Plummer), who in the years following his wife's death came out of the closet and embarked on a relationship with a younger man, Andy (Goran Visnjic), before succumbing to prostate cancer. As Oliver strives to make sense of his father's life he meets Anna (Mélanie Laurent), a kooky French actress, and the pair begin a relationship. Will the experience of caring for his father help Oliver overcome the fears of commitment that have dogged his relationships to date? Plummer received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance.

Oxfam Shop Kingsthorpe

A really great range for all Oxfam shoppers! We sell a variety of donated clothes and accessories, books, and homewares. We also sell a good selection of greetings cards. Call us for more information!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
