Life for the unassuming John May has always revolved around his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified exit, and writes eulogies and organizes funerals for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case–an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own–hits him harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long-abandoned daughter. Against the odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other– and John's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities

Limited Release: Still Struggling to Find a Hit

January 16th, 2015

Still Alice poster

It is a really, really bad weekend to release a limited release. Not only do fans of art house cinema have a lot of films to choose from, but many of them are busy talking about the Oscar nominations, which were just announced. Even so, there are about a dozen limited releases on this week's list. I seriously doubt most of them will do well enough to make a real impact on the box office. There is one exception, as Still Alice is earning great reviews and even picked up a number of major nominations this Awards Season. More...
