LIVING | Official Trailer (2022)


Adapted by Nobel prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro and based on Akira Kurosawa's 1952 masterpiece, Ikiru, Living tells the story of a British public works bureaucrat who receives a terminal diagnosis. With the thread of his life cut short, he explores strands heretofore unexperienced. Nominated for Best Lead Actor at the 2023 Academy Awards, Billy Nighy delivers a soulful, inward performance as a man with nothing to lose by doing the right thing.

Nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Actor.

D: Oliver Hermanus, UK, 2022, 1h42m

“Bill Nighy carries the film effortlessly on his slender shoulders, reminding us of why he's an international treasure.”
