"Sir Michael Caine gives one of the finest performances of his career as a retired magician who reluctantly enters a family-run old age home in John Crowley’s Is Anybody There? 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 of the home’s overwhelmed owners. (Played by Son of Rambow’s Bill Milner). 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 (the Spiderman trilogy) 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."
