Wednesday 1st December 2021 – THE LAST BUS (2021)
Starring Timothy Spall and Phyllis Logan
“Returning to his past, he found his future”
A heart-warming tale of Tom (Timothy Spall), a retired engineer who lives in John O’Groats in the northerly tip of Scotland. He and his late wife, Mary (Phyllis Logan) once lived as a young married couple in Land’s End but came to settle in John O’Groats because they wanted to put as much geographical and emotional distance as possible between them and an awful tragedy that struck them in the first year of their marriage. (Young Mary and Tom are played in sepia-ish flashback by Natalie Mitson and Ben Ewing). After Mary’s death, Tom takes it into his head to make an epic journey back down through Britain to Land’s End, using only local bus routes on his free bus pass. Along the way, his adventures are recorded by the people he meets and helps, and by the end of his trip he has unwittingly become a social media celebrity.
