Sony Pictures Classics has bought up the drama, And When Did You Last See Your Father?.

The film, to be directed by Anand Tucker (Shopgirl), is based on a memoir by British author Blake Morrison and will star Colin Firth as Morrison as he comes to terms with his relationship with his dying father, Arthur (Jim Broadbent). The Hollywood Reporter says the David Nichols screenplay includes flashbacks to the author's youth as he summons up memories of his father.

And When Did You Last See Your Father? will begin filming next month in London and Ireland.
