Stanley Tucci gives a beautifully understated performance as a dementia patient headed out on one last road trip with his partner, played with equal brilliance by Colin Firth. It’s essentially a slow and gentle two-man show with few surprises along the way, before sputtering across the finish line with an all-too-abrupt, cop-out ending. And that’s a bummer, especially since the balance of the film is a solid showcase for two of the finer actors at work today.

3.5/5 stars
