Living (2022)

Just watched Living with BIll Nighy, the Ikiru remake and I am sooo drained from the sad beauty of it and dehydrated from crying. Aimee Lou Wood is flawless, her performance is impeccable. I’m sure Oscars are in her future.

Nighy so reminds me of my Dad, of a lost ideal of literally gentle men that has now been replaced with snivelling shitbags like Ben Shapiro, Andrew Tate and Jordan Peterson.

And where is the honour and decency in our politicians?

Fuck me.
