Never Steady, Never Still 2017
TV-14 | 1h 52min | Drama | 22 June 2018 (USA)
A mother struggles to take control of her life in the face of advanced Parkinson’s disease, while her son battles his sexual and emotional identity amongst the violence of Alberta’s oil field work camps.
A moving story about a woman struggling to cope with the onset of the neurodegenerative disorder Parkinson’s, and her son coming to terms with his identity and sexuality. The film is all about performances, especially soft-spoken Shirley Henderson and her strong yet delicate performance. The characters seem very well observed in how they cope with grief, trauma and circumstance – a mutual appreciation of one another. These people are good people and it is refreshing the way the drama unfolds.
