“I definitely wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for this man next to me.” Heading to cinemas this November, SUPERNOVA stars Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as Sam and Tusker, partners of 20 years, as they travel across England in an RV. However, there is tragedy: as, Tusker is diagnosed with early on-set dementia. Written and directed by Harry Macqueen, the filmmaker behind the 2014 indie drama ‘Hinterland.’
It is deep Autumn and Sam and Tusker, partners of twenty years, are on holiday. They are travelling across England in their old campervan visiting friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with young-onset dementia two years ago their lives have had to change. Jobs have been given up and plans put on hold. Their time together is now the most important thing they have.
As the trip progresses however, their individual ideas for their future begin to collide. Secrets are uncovered, private plans unravel and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.
SUPERNOVA is released in cinemas on November 27, 2020.
