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.
