Love lives in SUPERNOVA and while it’s not the Valentines rom-com you may be seeking this weekend this flick is worth the watch. Stanley Tucci and Colon Firth dazzle as a couple dealing with the onset of dementia (Tucci’s character Tusker). SUPERNOVA is a blast in places and takes us on a road trip though bucholic Lake country, England . These two characters ooze as much charm as the country roads they traverse . The film is heavy but full of heart with a dash of humour. If for nothing else, watch to see two great actors at play bringing humanity to an illness (dementia) that sadly touches so many.
