Set in a sleepy British seaside town in the 1980s, Is Anybody There? out to own on DVD and Blu-Ray from Optimum Home Entertainment on 14th September 2009, tells the story of a morbid, bookish 10-year-old boy whose parents have turned their house into a retirement home. While his mother (Duff) struggles to keep the business afloat and his father (Morrissey) copes with the onset of a mid-life crisis, Edward (Milner) becomes increasingly obsessed with the afterlives of the home's elderly residents, following them around with a tape-recorder to capture the sound of the soul as it escapes the mortal coil…

But Edward's macabre turn of mind is distracted by the arrival of "The Amazing" Clarence (Michael Caine), an anarchic retired magician and grieving widower who is determined to age disgracefully. As an unlikely friendship blossoms between them, the old man comes to terms with his past, the child masters his fear of the future, and both learn to seize the day. An uplifting tale featuring Michael Caine in his most honest and powerful role yet and confirming Bill Milner's status as a major new talent.

Is Anybody There? is the latest feature film from BAFTA winner John Crowley, director of the acclaimed Boy A and Intermission. Starring two-time Oscar® winner Michael Caine (The Dark Knight) and Bill Milner (Son Of Rambow), the film also features an accomplished supporting cast including Anne-Marie Duff ( TV's Shameless), David Morrissey (The Other Boleyn Girl), Rosemary Harris (Tom And Viv), Sylvia Sims (The Queen, Ice Cold in Alex, TV's Eastenders) and Leslie Phillips (Venus, Harry Potter). The film is produced by David Heyman (the Harry Potter franchise; The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas), Marc Turtletaub (Laws Of Attraction), Peter Saraf (Little Miss Sunshine) and Rosie Alison (The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas).
