"I want to be remembered for who I was, and not for who I'm about to become."
Starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as partners for the past 20 years Sam and Tusker, 'Supernova' sees the couple go on holiday across England in their old campervan visiting friends and family and places from their past.
The story looks to be one of immense character-driven moments, touching on a heartbreaking illness that will hit home to so many viewers. Tusker has been diagnosed with young-onset dementia for the past two years, and so their lives as they knew them have had to change. Jobs have been given up, plans put on hold, and their time together is now the most important thing that they have and can cherish. However, as their trip progresses, secrets are uncovered and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.
Joining Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci in the cast list are Pippa Haywood ('Green Wing'), James Dreyfus ('The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance'), and Sarah Woodward ('The Pale Horse').
There is a lot of positive buzz surrounding the drama, which will have its world premiere at San Sebastián International Film Festival on September 24.
'Supernova' was written and directed by Harry Macqueen ('Hinterland') with the aid of the award-winning producers of '45 Years' and 'I Am Not A Witch'.
Here's the trailer for 'Supernova'. The movie will premiere in Irish cinemas on November 27.
