Set in a seaside English town circa 1987, IS ANYBODY THERE? charts the unlikely friendship that develops between Caine' s proud, acerbic old performer and the death-obsessed young son (played by SON OF RAMBOW'S Bill Milner) of the home's overwhelmed owners.
Written by Peter Harness, who draws from his own experience growing up in a retirement home, IS ANYBODY THERE? brings a rich humor as well as a rigorous honesty to its portrait of different lives colliding under one roof.
With a supporting cast that includes Anne-Marie Duff (THE MAGDALENE SISTERS), David Morrissey (THE DEAL), Rosemary Harris (SPIDER-MAN) and Leslie Phillips (VENUS), IS ANYBODY THERE? tells a charming story about growing up and growing old, and the unpredictable adventures that happen along the way.
In theaters: April 17, 2009.
