Jamie (Jim Sturgess), after many months of searching, finally tracks down his estranged father (Ray Winstone), and together they embark on a dangerous road trip. However, with Frank becoming more unstable and Jamie s motives unclear, the journey gradually unravels their dark and sinister pasts. With a supporting cast including Luke Evans (Immortals), Jodie Whittaker (Attack the Block) and Lesley Manville (Vera Drake), Ashes is a gripping crime thriller with a grimly satisfying twist.

This film was absolutely fantastic. The acting is incredible and ray winstone deserves great critical acclaim for his portrayal of a man suffering with Alzheimer's. Funny, heartfelt and beautifully shot with a brilliant twist. Highly recommended!

Demetia, an uncomfortable subject for a film, maybe a bit slow at times for some viewers, but
brilliant acting all round by everyone, especially Ray Winston.
Good storyline with an unexpected twist at the end.

I brought this expecting a gritty, dark english `gangster' film, how wrong i was!
The basic plot is James (Jim Sturgess) has spent months trying to track down his father (Ray Winstone), whom he finds sectioned in a secure hospital after suffering with Alzheimer's.
After breaking out of the hospital they embark on a road trip south, for Jimmy to take his father home.
It is funny, sad, tear-jerking, thought provoking, and has a good twist at the end.
Ray Winstone's performance is incredible, and easily worthy of an oscar!

Can't recommend highly enough!
Great film, must see.

I bought this film expecting another Ray Winston, British gangster film, but I was so impressed with this film, Ray Winston's performance is certainly Oscar worthy, his portrayal of a dementia/Alzheimer's sufferer is so moving and you will love the way the journey unfolds.

Yes Ray Winstone, you can be proud of yourself.
He portrays a man suffering with alzheimers extremely well.
Some bits made me laugh and the film has a good twist.

This film took me by surprise. This is Ray Winstone as you've never seen him before but he is excellent.
Beautifully shot with excellent performances, this is not a dumb movie but recommended for those interested in cinema.

Just watched this and I really enjoyed it, deeply dark and sinister, but brilliantly acted by Ray, I am a big Ray Winstone film and I think he is a brilliant actor, but in this I think he shows us a different side to his talents, and I for one think he is a top class actor, sorry, no spoilers or synopsis, read the back of the box!!!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By THE MOVIE GUY on 1 Nov. 2013
Format: DVD
Frank (Ray Winstone) is institutionalized because of severe Alzheimer disease. He doesn't have the cute Hollywood version where a man forgets to wear his pants from time to time, but rather one where he becomes violent and remembers things like how to hot wire automobiles. His son (Luke Evans) shows up at the institute and breaks him out, although we soon discover his reason is not as benign as it appears on the surface as Luke tries to save both Frank and his family.

The film has a number of twists. The problem of dealing with an Alzheimer's patient is presented in such a way that it should be left to professionals.

This is a well acted, well developed story.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
