Colin Firth stars as British author Blake Morrison in the film adaptation of his novel, When Did You Last See Your Father? Arthur Morrison, played superbly by Jim Broadbent, overshadowed and embarrassed his son throughout his formative years. He grew bitter and resented his father over time. But as Arthur lay dying, Blake faces a family secret with a new understanding, and realizes how deeply he will miss his father. The acting is excellent in this small, but extremely human story of family bonds. Check out our exclusive interviews with the star and director below.

When Did You Last See Your Father? is in limited theaters now.
