Ashes is a 2012 British thriller film directed by Mat Whitecross.[1]


Frank (Ray Winstone) is confined to a residential home, suffering from Alzheimer's with his past, present, and future slowly breaking down. One day, a young man named James (Jim Sturgess) visits, wanting to reconnect with a father who no longer remembers him. James breaks Frank out of the home and the pair go on the run. As their spontaneous journey unfolds funny, violent and tragic all rolled into one, the present combines with incomplete memories of the past mixing fact with fiction and we begin to realize that nothing is quite what it seems.
