Supernova ★★★½

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci excel in Harry Macqueen's melancholic but powerful tale of love and loss, 'Supernova.' Both carry out the dramatic scenes in a restrained way, without the need to exaggerate or seek the easy tear. And the dialogues between the two leads are straightforward despite addressing deep and complex themes such as life and death, past and future. The other outstanding element is the photography direction of Dick Pope, who presents images of great visual beauty of the English countryside with postcard-like framing that highlights the calming qualities of nature.
