      • Based on the 1952 Akira Kurosawa film Ikiru (To Live), LIVING has been exquisitely adapted by the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro. LIVING is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine to a shadow existence, who at the eleventh hour makes a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful. This wise and moving drama is an existential journey that celebrates learning how to live life, in all its fleeting beauty. LIVING sets a high bar for itself in setting out to remake a Kurosawa classic and director Oliver Hermanus and star Bill Nighy clear it in triumphant fashion. Utterly gorgeous and emotionally gratifying.
