That Good Night
- Directed By:

- John Hurt, Charles Dance, Sofia Helin, Erin Richards, Max Brown
Ralph, a once-famous screenwriter and film director, is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has two final missions in life: to be reconciled to his long-abandoned son, Michael, and, secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his younger devoted wife, Anna, as he goes “into that good night”. Set in their luxury villa in the remote hilltops that surround the Algarve coastline of Portugal, this tragic love story bravely tackles issues of euthanasia, nature and the meaning of life and death. Based on the hugely successful stage play by NJ Crisp, its brilliant and witty arguments address issues that we traditionally avoid.
