THIRD STAR

 

(UK/2010–directed by Hattie Dalton)

James and his three closest lifelong friends go on an ill-advised trip to the stunning coastal area of Barafundle Bay in West Wales. James has been diagnosed with a serious illness so he and his friends suspect that the trip will be their last together. They use it both as an opportunity to experience the joy of a group adventure and to resolve the latent tensions that affect the group. The results are touching and funny, leaving an enduring sense of the courage and the dignity to be found in James and the beauty to be found in the friendship between him and the three other men. (92 min.)
