And When Did You Last See Your Father?

Colin Firth, in my opinion the sexiest man in cinema today, broke my heart in And When Did You Last See Your Father?, the story of a man trying desperately to deal with the fact that his father is dying, a figure that has left unanswered questions and feelings of incapability.  Swirling in and out of the present moment with flashbacks of growing up, the story unfolds revealing moments of joy that always seem to be tainted by a misery never understood.

The 2007 film directed by Anand Tucker is based on an autobiography by Blake Morrison and received generally positive reviews from the critics.  I’d have to second that.
