Nowhere Special

British actor James Norton gives a career-best performance as a Northern Irish window cleaner with a terminal diagnosis. Knowing what we do, and his young son doesn’t, as Norton’s John attempts to keep up the pretence of normality, each moment is packed with gut-wrenching emotion. A quiet gem of a film.
