Nowhere Special

Directed by Uberto Pasolini
UK, Italy, Romania
96 minutes
This tender human drama stars James Norton (Little Women, 2019) as a terminally ill single father in Northern Ireland searching for the ‘perfect’ foster family for his three year old son.
Saturday, 16 October 2021, 4:30pm


The setting is an ordinary neighbourhood in Northern Ireland, but there is nothing ordinary about John, a 35-year-old window washer. He has found out that he has only a few months left to say goodbye to young son Michael. Desperate, he attempts to find a new and ‘perfect’ family for his son.

The first feature in seven years from award-winning writer-producer-director Uberto Pasolini (The Full Monty, 1997; Still Life, 2013) is one of those very rare films that’s both heartbreaking and magically life-affirming. Pasolini’s superb screenplay and masterful direction is matched by magnificent performances from Norton and child actor Daniel Lamont.
