"Brian Cox twinkles in touching odd-couple drama..."
"Brian Cox rages vigorously against the dying of the light.”
“...the charm of the film comes from the performances..."
"The Carer: An outstanding Brian Cox in the role of his life."
Brian Cox is an Emmy Award-winning Scottish actor. Cox started his carrier in numerous television films and his first major role was Dr. Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter which every much established his career. He also played Sir Winston Churchill in a 2016 feature.
The director lost his father and brother-in-law not too long ago, and he has built the relationship between Sir Michael and Dorottya in "The Carer" by drawing inspiration from the slapstick lines that he and his father would tell each other to soothe their emotional pain during the year they spent in and out of hospitals.
