Cinematography by Kate McCullough (The Quiet Girl). This is the fifth AFF film featuring Jim Broadbent (The Lady in the Van, Another Year, The Damned United, The Young Victoria and Pride.

It's a non-religious pilgrim story about the power of hope and faith. A movie that celebrates everyday joys and human connection. The perfect pick-me-up tonic for tough times. Larushka Ivan-Zadeh/Metro Newspaper (UK)
It is immediately one of the great movies about ageing and regret, up there with 45 Years and The Straight Story. Kevin Maher/Times (UK)
Here's Oscar winner Jim Broadbent giving arguably the performance of his illustrious career -- an actor made for the long road playing a man on that very route. Harry Guerin/RTÉ (Ireland)
