Although this theme has been used before in a very good French film, I did enjoy this, good acting and well directed.

Very enjoyable story reminiscent of the highly acclaimed "Me Before You". Here, the patient is curmudgeonly Brian Cox, an old, ailing Shakespearean actor, who has gone through numerous "carers" due to his sour disposition. Along comes a spirited young candidate, with a similar love of Shakespeare and acting, who is determined not to let the rude and irritating Sir Gifford get to her. A friendship is forged, not without difficulty, that reveals deeper messages of honoring the elderly and respecting differences. Excellent acting and writing, with just the right dose of humor make viewing "The Carer" a joy!

Hungarian production, strong cast, contemporary setting and interesting storyline - dying Thespian meets Hungarian carer who has dramatic aspirations herself.
