The Last Bus
Director: Gillies Mackinnon
Cast: Timothy Spall, Phyllis Logan
Distributor: Samuel Goldwyn Films
The Last Bus follows 90-year-old Tom Harper (Timothy Spall) on an epic trip from his home of fifty years - a remote village in the most northerly point of Scotland - back to the place he was born close to England's most southerly point. Battling against time, age and fate, desperate to keep a promise to his beloved wife Mary (Phyllis Logan), Tom embarks on an odyssey, revisiting his past, connecting with the modern world and a diverse, multicultural Britain he has never experienced.
"Anchored by the gifted Spall, the film spins a wistful but emotionally resonant tale, infusing earthy wit into even some heart-stopping moments." -Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
