The Nobel Prize-winning novelist and playwright Samuel Beckett shunned publicity, living in France from his student years until his death in 1989. In a riveting performance, Irish actor Gabriel Byrne portrays two versions of the writer embodying different aspects of his personality: one racked with guilty memories and self-recrimination, the other a happier spirit who believes love and pleasure are our salvation in a grim world. These inner dialogues punctuate a series of chapters covering the writer’s life, from childhood through his move to France, where he gets a job as assistant to his mentor, James Joyce, before he joins the French Resistance in acclaimed director James Marsh's inspiring movie.
