Shirley Henderson gives an extraordinary and deeply touching performance in this auspicious
feature debut from Canadian director Kathleen Hepburn. Judy (Henderson) has spent nearly all
her married life battling Parkinson’s disease. Her husband Eddie (Nicholas Campbell) and son Jamie (Théodore Pellerin) have been allies in her long struggle
to live a decent life, but Judy’s health is now in decline and things that
others take for granted are becoming beyond her. Her fight to endure is
balanced by a lament for what might have been, in a poignant, beautifully
judged family drama.
