    Colin Firth Trailer: And When Did You Last See Your Father

    And When Did You Last See Your Father?



    And When Did You Last See Your Father?
    World Cinema
    Anand Tucker | UK | 2007
    Arthur Morrison (Jim Broadbent), and his wife Kim (Juliet Stevenson), are GPs in the same medical practice in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. They have two children, Gillian (Claire Skinner), and her older brother Blake (Colin Firth), from whose perspective the story is told. Blake is 40, married with two children, an established author, and having to face the fact that his father is terminally ill.
    The film opens during a summer bank holiday family trip in the late 1950s. Arthur hits the hard shoulder to skip a long queue of traffic at a car racing event, and eight year old Blake, and the rest of the family, are crippled with embarrassment. It’s the first of many flashbacks that illustrate Arthur’s bluff attitude to life and his pride in getting something for nothing. In the present it becomes clear that Arthur still dominates his grown-up son, a dynamic to which Blake is resigned much to his wife, Kathy’s (Gina McKee) annoyance. But when he and his family confront the reality of Arthur’s cancer, Blake is forced to reconcile himself with the past.
    And When Did You Last See Your Father? is an unflinching exploration of a father/son relationship, as Blake Morrison deals with his father Arthur’s terminal illness and imminent death. Blake’s memories of everything funny, embarrassing and upsetting about his childhood and teens are interspersed with tender and heart-rending scenes in the present, as he struggles to come to terms with his father, and their history of conflict, and learns to accept that one’s parents are not always accountable to their children.

    Wow. I saw mention of that movie on his IMDB page but had no idea it was such a powerful piece. It looks like an amazing movie...(and I hope you don't see it alone DB)

    And to entice a few others I know around here...including the girl above me...

    ^^^Oooh, lovely!^^^

    Thank you-thank you!

    tm, I read the book already, right after my dad died. What I was thinking in doing such a thing, I can't say. But it was a very good book and I'm so looking forward to the movie.

    Jim Broadbent is a favorite of mine. Such a cuddly dad he was in the Bridget Jones movies, and so very funny.

    Whoa, Colin Firth, Juliet Stevenson and Jim Broadbent....as family? I'm all over this one!

    Looks beautiful. Also looks like I might have to call my dad sobbing afterward.

    DB - any idea when this movie will actually be released in the US? Comingsoon.net says only TBA 2007. On the IMDB page it says February 08! (Which should be a very nice Colin Firth month for you if that remains true as his next film "The Accidental Husband" also is currently scheduled for a Feb 08 release)

    So wait...

    He goes from Bridget Jones' funny English dad to Mr. Darcy's dying funny English dad?


    That's what I call - range!



    I just had to say something about all the Firth-O-Philia going on around here...

    No need for jealousy.

    Colin Firth is unattainable. He's just to be admired from afar!

    PEZZ plays pretty hard to get too sometimes, actually.
