Quirky coming-of-age story with a great performance by Michael Caine. Growing up in a family-run rest home has left young Edward (Bill Milner from Son of Rambow
) obsessed with death and what happens afterward. In the course of pestering the elderly residents of the place, he gradually befriends grumpy retired magician Clarence (Caine). Nothing new plot-wise, but the oddball heart-warmer has a melancholy charm and the acting is aces. The rapport between Caine and Milner is satisfying. 92 minutes.
