Review

alikable overall performance by richard dreyfuss livens up this easygoing drama approximately 2d probabilities and late-life journey from actor-grew to become-director shelagh mcleod. dreyfuss plays a retired civil engineer who, all his existence, has dreamed of going to area and is now in with a chance of prevailing a golden price tag. the role is a pleasant reflect to close encounters, wherein dreyfuss ditched his wife and youngsters to fly off with the little inexperienced guys.

here he's a family-orientated man who nursed his wife thru dementia and is loved with the aid of his person daughter. he has lived an excellent existence however possibly stifles a pang of regret on the common-ness of it all. it’s a movie of smooth emotions, although perhaps a bit predictable and bluntly sentimental.

dreyfuss is angus stewart, a seventy five-yr-antique with a dodgy ticker living in a nursing domestic. his face subtly registers the indignities of the care home regime: dinner at the nursery appointed hour of 5pm, tickings off from staff who speak to residents as if they had been naughty puppies. it’s angus’s grandson who persuades him to go into a lottery to win a seat on the first business flight into area, that's being bankrolled by way of an obsessive tech billionaire (colm feore). of path, angus makes the shortlist of 12 finalists.

in a minor way, the plot turns into abruptly timely; experts are cut up on a life-and-death count. angus, an authority on avenue surfacing, spots a prime safety difficulty with the flight runway. who will the billionaire trust – his team of costly consultants or the old timer?

it’s a huge-hearted if formulaic tale, with some plot implausibilities: as an example, at one point angus candy talks his manner beyond security on the launch website’s barbed twine gate. and, for a film that is creating a factor approximately how the information of older humans is omitted, its care domestic residents come dangerously near searching like patronising stereotypes.
