Dok snima film u Indiji, Simon prima uznemirujući poziv od svog ujaka Davida, koji nagoveštava svoju nadolazeću smrt. Međutim, David, zaljubljenik u Šekspira i drama queen, nema nameru da napusti ovaj svet uskoro. Odbijajući starački dom, David izgovara stihove iz Kralja Lira dok njegov život odražava teme iz te drame. U ovom hitu sa IDFA 2022 festivala, koji je Variety opisao kao “bolno smešno/tužno” i Film Verdict kao “remek-delo”, Simon se suočava s izazovom osiguranja “dobrog umiranja” svog ujaka, ili kako David kaže, “odlaska na divan odmor bez gnjavaže oko pakovanja”.

Much Ado About Dying

Simon receives a distressing call from his Uncle David in India, who hints at his impending demise. However, David, a Shakespeare-loving drama queen, has no plans of departing this world just yet. Refusing a care home, David recites King Lear as his life mirrors the play’s themes. In this IDFA 2022 hit described as ‘achingly funny/sad’ by Variety and a ‘Masterpiece’ by Film Verdict, Simon takes on the challenge of ensuring his uncle’s ‘good death,’ or as David puts it, ‘going on a wonderful holiday without the bother of having to pack.’
