From the director of the wonderful Still Life (2013), and inspired by a true story, Nowhere Special features James Norton as thirty-five-year-old window cleaner John, who has dedicated his life to bringing up his son Michael (Daniel Lamont), after the child’s mother left them soon after giving birth. When John is given only a few months to live, he sets out, with the help of a sympathetic social worker (Eileen O’Higgins), to find a new, perfect family for his four-year-old son.

“This could be sentimental and twee, particularly as Michael, in his little yellow mac, is cute as a button, but Pasolini reins it in and keeps it spare and tight, while Norton’s quietly devastating performance is a revelation. There is nothing that isn’t believable here.”  Deborah Ross, The Spectator
