Still Life, movie review: Eddie Marsan gives a likeable performance in well …

Eddie Marsan plays John May, one of these council workers, a lonely man himself but one who attends as many funerals as he can.

May also writes eulogies for the dead in a bid to give them a taste of dignity and recognition. His dedication isn’t shared by the Council, who want to sack him after 22 years.

This is a gentle, well-observed drama with a very likeable performance from Marsan as the Mr Benn-like hero. The ending, though, is just a little too treacly.
