Director Simon Chambers has gone to India to make a film about cars. But suddenly his British uncle, David, calls to say he’s dying. When the nephew heads back to England, it turns out the uncle is more dramatic than dying. Uncle David is, in fact, a closeted old theatre actor who trips around half-naked in his mess of a home quoting Shakespeare. While he’s at it, his nephew Simon turns on his camera and starts filming his old uncle for a movie worthy of a Shakespearean play. Every time you think the story is falling into place, it ties itself in a new dramatic knot, creating terrific cinematic moments where you can’t help but surrender and let your emotions flow.
