That man, Asa Butterfield, is back again after we recently saw him Slaughterhouse Rulez. This time he’s alongside Maisie Williams (“Early Man“, “Game Of Thrones (TV)”) in Departures, aka Then Came You.
It’s a comedy, drama from writer Fergal Rock (“Fair City (TV)”, “On Our Way (Short)”) and director Peter Hutchings (“The Outcasts”, “Rhymes With Bananas”).
Calvin’s hypochondria leads him to a cancer support group, despite not having cancer, and it is here that he meets the eccentric and bold Skye (Williams), who does have cancer, and she instantly latches onto him, whether he likes it or not.
Skye has a death list, kinda like a bucket list, but odder. It contains things like ‘punch someone in the face’ or ‘get arrested’, none of the usual ‘swim with dolphins’ for Skye.
As their friendship grows, Calvin struggles to tell Skye he doesn’t actually have cancer and he also struggles to tell airline steward Izzy, Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries (TV)”, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower”), whom he takes a shine to, and the feeling appears mutual.
