Nowhere Special

1h 36m Drama 2020

John, a 35-year-old window cleaner, has dedicated his life to bringing up his 4-year-old son, Michael, after the child’s mother left them soon after giving birth. When John is given only a few months left to live, he attempts to find a new, perfect family for Michael, determined to shield him from the terrible reality of the situation.

Although initially certain of what he is looking for in the perfect family, John gradually abandons his early convictions, over-whelmed by doubts on the decision. How can he judge a family from a brief encounter? And does he know his own child well enough to make this choice for him? As John struggles to find the right answer to his impossible task, he comes to accept the help of a young social worker, opening himself to solutions he would never have considered.

“Beautiful and heartbreaking. A beguiling portrait of love, grief, and the pragmatism that unites them, built up via tender moments of the most ordinary sort. James Norton’s performance is revelatory.” ~MaryAnn Johansen, FlickFilosopher

“It’s an instant lump in the throat, then, when we learn that John is terminally ill and must find a foster home for his baby boy. The film is understated rather than mawkish.” ~Simran Hans, The Guardian
