The Carer (JutalomJáték)
Brian Cox, Coco König / Fiction / English, Hungarian
A magnificent Brian Cox plays an ageing acting legend.
Brian Cox is at his theatrical best in this enjoyably mannered comedy drama, starring as Sir Michael Gifford, a retired Shakespearean actor suffering from Parkinson’s that has left him frustrated and gloriously grumpy, at his country manor. His family insists he has a carer and he ends up with Hungarian refugee Dorottya (Coco König) who has acting aspirations of her own. The late Gilbert Adair is amongst the credited writers, though apparently Cox himself contributed the wonderful speech Gifford gives at an awards ceremony. [12A]
