Adapted by Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro from Akira Kurosawa’s Japanese classic ‘Ikiru’
(‘To Live’) and directed by Oliver Hermanus (‘Moffie’, ‘The Endless River’), ‘Living’ co-stars
Aimee Lou Wood (‘Sex Education’). Profoundly moving, the film is nothing less than the
search for the meaning of life itself.
‘Deeply felt, beautifully acted… Nighy is heartbreakingly shy and sensitive, his refined,
almost birdlike profile presented to the camera in occasional stark and enigmatic closeups…
A gentle, exquisitely sad film.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
