Virgin Media Opening Night Gala.

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci dazzle as a loving gay couple in this touching and beautifully judged drama, now emerging as an awards-season favourite. Sam and Tusker have been together for two decades and are eager to fulfil a long-held dream of travelling across England in their camper van to revisit family, friends and memories of their past. There is a reason they have finally found this time – their careers as a musician and novelist have been put on hold as Tusker has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia. Painfully aware that this might be their last holiday while Tusker is still well, they embark on their journey. Directing from his own script, actor-turned-filmmaker Harry Macqueen gently focuses the story around the couple’s relationship as he similarly did in his acclaimed debut, Hinterland. He builds on that promise here, delivering an intimate

drama that’s all the more moving for its lack of sentimentality. Firth and Tucci are superb, giving us heartfelt performances in a film about the power of love.
