Nowhere Special (2021)

  • Drama
  • 1h 32m

Filmed and set in Northern Ireland and inspired by true events, Nowhere Special is a beautifully tender tearjerker written and directed by Italian filmmaker Uberto Pasolini (Still Life) and starring James Norton (Mr. Jones).

John (Norton), a 35-year-old window cleaner, devotes his life to raising his 4-year-old son Michael (Daniel Lamont) on his own. Their life is a simple one, made up of universal daily rituals, a life of complete dedication and innocent love that reveals the strength of their relationship. But John only has a few months to live. Since he has no family to turn to, he will spend the days left to him looking for a new and perfect one to adopt Michael, trying to protect his child from the terrible reality.

Although initially sure of what he is looking for in the perfect family, John gradually abandons his early convictions, overwhelmed by doubts about the decision. How can he judge a family from a brief encounter? And does he know his child well enough to make this choice for him?
