In this moving modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple revisiting England’s Lake District after a devastating diagnosis.

“Tucci and Firth have never been better than they are here” –Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post

In this modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple struggling with a diagnosis of early-onset dementia. Sam (Firth) and Tusker (Tucci) have been together 20 years, and are driving through England’s Lake District in their old camper van reconnecting with friends, family, and old haunts in the wake of Tusker’s life-changing illness. Sam has placed his life on hold in order to act as his partner’s full-time caregiver, and the men’s time together has become especially sacred. Their trip is a last opportunity to travel while Tusker is still able — but secrets are revealed, plans unravel, and their love is tested like never before.

Writer-director Harry Macqueen (Hinterland) directs Supernova with “consistent care … [and] here that care pays off to devastating effect” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times).
