Billy's Wake

  • 13'
  • United Kingdom
  • 2001
Unable to focus on his future as a middleaged suburbanite marrying into a satellite television business, Billy finds himself transported back to his 1970s heyday to raise a glass to a lost friend and lay his ghosts to rest. By the director of Burying the Dead, Klaus Fried's elegiac film resonates with the distortions of memory, guilt and lost time, full of longing for the kind of youthful exuberance that can bubble over into violence.
