Movie propaganda

From an original screenplay by Peter Harness this is the story of Edward (Bill Milner), a somewhat unusual ten-year-old boy growing up in an old people's home run by his parents. Whilst his mother struggles to keep the family business afloat, and his father copes with the onset of mid-life crisis, Edward is busy tape-recording the elderly residents to try and discover what happens when they die. Increasingly obsessed with ghosts and the afterlife, Edward lives a rather lonely existence until he meets Clarence (Michael Caine), the latest recruit to the home, a retired magician with a liberating streak of anarchy. Is anybody there? tells the surprising, touching story of this odd couple - a boy and an old man - facing life together, with Edward learning to live in the moment and Clarence coming to terms with the past.
