The studio is bringing its movie The Carer to American audiences July 14. The British import dramedy premiered in the United Kingdom in 2016. It stars .Golden Globe Award winning actor Brian Cox (X2: X–Men United, Adaptation, Super Troopers) in the lead role as ailing theatrical legend Sir Michael Gifford. Gifford is suffering from a a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease.
As a result of his condition, Gifford is in need of someone to help him on a daily basis. Enter Dorottya (Coco Konig — Assassin’s Creed, To The Boats, Die Rauber) an aspiring Hungarian stage actress, as Gifford’s carer. She hopes that in caring for Gifford, her career can get a boost. Things between the pair start off rough, but their friendship eventually grows.
While the duo’s friendship grows, the around the pair become dubious of Dorottya’s real intentions. This ultimately leads to a confrontation between Gifford and his scheming daughter Sophia (Emilia Fox — The Pianist, Dorian Gray, Cashback), who is trying to keep her father from what could be his last on-stage appearance, a ceremony held by the Critics Guild of Great Britain.
