Hero Banner

NOWHERE SPECIAL

This tender human drama stars James Norton (Little Women, 2019) as a terminally ill single father searching for a foster family for his son. 

The first feature in seven years from award-winning writer-producer-director Uberto Pasolini (The Full Monty, 1997; Still Life, 2013) is one of those very rare films that’s both heartbreaking and magically life-affirming.

The setting is an ordinary neighbourhood in Northern Ireland. But there is nothing ordinary about John, a 35-year-old window washer with only a few months left to say goodbye to young son Michael and find him a new family.

Pasolini’s superb screenplay and masterful direction is matched by magnificent performances from Norton and child actor Daniel Lamont. This is social realist cinema of the very best and most moving kind.
