Chance SS

Trevor’s life has become a void, following the passing of his wife and long term companion, Doris. A chance encounter in the park with a mysterious stranger equally troubled by his own dark past jarringly reawakens him, and forces both men to live again.


Why you should watch it:

  • Character development
  • Performances
  • Emotion
  • EVERYTHING!

A little more insight…

It made me cry. Yes, I can admit that. I found Chance so moving that it made me cry.

It’s quite tempting to just leave it at that if I’m honest. If something moves someone to tears are you not curious enough to watch it yourself?

So what can I say without spoiling it all?

To begin with, Chance covers various issues from immigration, religion, death and the elderly, but that’s not to say that it gets bogged down in it all, far from it.

It is, at its core, a love story. One that transcends language and background.

At the start Amir and Trevor can barely communicate with one another but, as time progresses, they teach each other how to speak one another’s language and learn how to communicate and in doing so how to live again, how to love again.

It was when they held hands that set me off; such a beautiful shot.

Whether it ends well or not, I will leave it down for you to find out…


Things that bugged me:

  • I cannot fault it…
