Carer, The

Synopsis
Feature film. A young Hungarian actress (Coco König) becomes the carer of famously difficult stage actor Sir Michael Gifford (Brian Cox), who is in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. Their relationship gets off to a bumpy start but when the two begin to bond over a mutual love of Shakespeare, their closeness arouses the jealousy of Sir Michael’s daughter, Sophia, and his faithful ex-lover, Milly.
