SUPERNOVA: (2021 available for streaming on Prime Video for $6.99 rental) Supernova is the tale of a gay couple coming to terms with the fact that one of them is experiencing early-onset dementia. It is an incredibly moving story of two men who are deeply in love but will soon face the reality that one will lose his ability to comprehend the world around him. Barbara and I were blown away by the dazzling talents of the two leads. If you are a big fan of Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, as we are, then this is a film you won’t want to miss. The chemistry between Firth and Tucci is so natural that it's impossible to say which of the two is better and it is a pleasure watching them work together on screen. The two men are traveling across England in an old camper van visiting friends, family and places from their past. Interestingly, in real life Firth and Tucci are longtime friends and they were originally slotted into the opposite roles than the ones they ended up playing in the film. The title of the film will make more sense if you think of a supernova as the last hurrah of a massive star. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics liked the film far more than audiences: 89% vs 67%. We agree with the critics. GRADE A.
