George Bird (Alec Guinness) is a mild-mannered salesman who is told by his doctor that he only has a very short time left to live. Determined not to waste his final days, he decides to go on one last holiday to live the rest of his life to the full. Last Holiday is a timeless parable on the notion that life is not just how long you live, but how well. Alec Guinness delivers an amazing performance as George Bird. His embodiment of an average anonymous man who constantly surprises himself is magical to watch. Written by renowned novelist and playwright J.B. Priestley (An Inspector Calls), Last Holiday is a substantial and thought-provoking Ealing comedy. From the beginning to its jaw-dropping twist ending, it is a warm , funny, affecting and unforgettable film.
