Jim Broadbent gives an engaging and sympathetic performance in this British film adaptation of Julian Barnes’s novel from the director of The Lunchbox Ritesh Batra.
Broadbent plays grumpy retiree Tony whose past catches up with him when he receives a mysterious legacy from the mother of his girlfriend from university days Veronica. The legacy is the diary of a friend who became Veronica’s lover after she and Tom broke up acrimoniously.
When Tom reconnects with Veronica he is forced to confront a number of painful memories from his past as she sheds new light on the events surrounding their failed relationship. The film also stars Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer and Harriet Walter.
