James Norton brings on the screen a wonderfully touching role of a young dying father looking for a new family for his small child, in Uberto Pasolini’s Nowhere Special. We talked about his preparation and his little but great co-star, who steals the film and brings in some magic.

Nowhere Special: John, a 35-year-old window cleaner, devotes his life to raising his 4-year-old son Michael, as the child’s mother left them immediately after his birth. Their life is a simple one, made up of universal daily rituals, a life of complete dedication and innocent love that reveals the strength of their relationship. But John only has a few months to live. Since he has no family to turn to, he will spend the days left to him looking for a new and perfect one to adopt Michael, trying to protect his child from the terrible reality.
