In 2006, council officials forcibly entered a north London flat with an eviction notice, only to recoil at the decomposing body of Joyce Carol Vincent, a woman in her late 30s, who had lain there, the TV still on, for a full three years. This true story of a woman, who simply slipped away unnoticed, proves a chastening reminder of the fragility of our relationships and the daunting challenge of keeping up appearances. It’s a compassionate, haunting and remarkable work.

The story takes place in Hollywood between 1927 and 1932. Jean Dujardin’s plays, George Valentin a silent movie superstar. For Bérénice Bejo, the one-time extra who’s in love with him, the arrival of sound presents her with fresh opportunities, yet Valentin rejects the talkies as a gimmick, putting his career on the line.

Hawaiian lawyer George Clooney’s is thrust into crisis when a boating accident leaves his wife in a coma. He has two daughters to look after and a family inheritance has also charged him with deciding the future of thousands of acres of unspoiled coast. Clooney’s performance is entirely believable and increasingly sympathetic as a man who has buried himself in work and responsibility to such a degree he’s lost track of the emotional connections that make life worthwhile.
