See Michael Caine’s New Film For Free

Posted on: 14 April 2009 by Gareth Hargreaves

50connect readers can see Michael Caine’s new film Is Anybody There? for free and before it is released in UK cinemas. Find out how here.


Set in a sleepy British seaside town in the 1980s, Is Anybody There? tells the story of a morbid, bookish 10-year-old boy whose parents have turned their house into a retirement home. 

While his mother (Duff) struggles to keep the business afloat and his father (Morrissey) copes with the onset of a mid-life crisis, Edward (Milner) becomes increasingly obsessed with the afterlives of the home’s elderly residents, following them around with a tape-recorder to capture the sound of the soul as it escapes the mortal coil… But Edward’s macabre behaviour is cut short by the arrival of “The Amazing” Clarence (Sir Michael Caine), an anarchic retired magician and grieving widower who is determined to age disgracefully. 

As an unlikely friendship blossoms between them, the old man comes to terms with his past, the child masters his fear of the future, and both learn to seize the day.

The stellar cast includes:  Sir Michael Caine, Bill Milner (Son of Rambow) Anne Marie Duff (The Magdalene Sisters), David Morrisey (Red Riding), Leslie Phillips (Carry on Films, Doctor Who, Venus), Peter Vaughn (Porridge), Sylvia Syms (The Queen), Rosemary  Harris (Spiderman) and Elizabeth Spriggs (Sense and Sensibility).
