Sunday afternoon at the 2022 London Film Festival was the perfect time to catch up with one of the best films of the year. We saw Oliver Hermanus’ Living back in January at Sundance and gave it the full five stars; today the film had its UK premiere at the festival. Directed by Hermanus, adapted by Kazuo Ishiguro the film stars Bill Nighy, Aimee Lou Wood, Alex Sharp and Tom Burke.

The film will open in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 4 November. Colin Hart, Ethan Hart and Scott Davis were on the red carpet, here are their interviews.

Living Premiere Interviews


A reimagining of Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru. 1953. A London shattered by WWII is still recovering. Williams (Bill Nighy), a veteran civil servant, is an impotent cog within the city’s bureaucracy as it struggles to rebuild. Buried under paperwork at the office, lonely at home, his life has long felt empty and meaningless. Then a shattering medical diagnosis forces him to take stock – and to try and grasp fulfilment before it goes beyond reach.
