Description

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci are in absolutely sparkling form as sixty-something couple Sam and Tusker, respectively, the former an ex-musician and the latter a novelist suffering from increasing dementia. In what is clearly going to be their last trip together, they tour the English countryside in a camper van. From this humble outline, writer-director Harry Macqueen has fashioned a profoundly moving drama about love and loss that speaks volumes about the ways in which people attempt to come to terms with the inevitable. And Firth and Tucci really are at the top of their game here; their rapport is a beautiful thing to behold.

‘It’s rare to see a cinematic drama executed with such consistent care as “Supernova”… And here, that care pays off to devastating effect… As performers, Tucci and Firth embody the best kind of masculinity, which has been missing from popular culture for so long that we’ve forgotten what it looks like. Their characters are men of passion but also men of integrity. And most important, they’re men who know what love is… This astounding movie offers [the deepest kind of compassion] in abundance.’—Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
