The Edinburgh International Film Festival – the world’s longest continually running festival – has always been dedicated to finding new voices, celebrating the best of British and making sure there’s room for whatever slice of sparkly new animation Disney-Pixar has to offer. As it calls time for its 72nd year, AnOther examines the best of some 121 films that were part of this year’s programme.

Here’s what they say about the film:

No. 4. The Parting Glass

True Blood star Stephen Moyer makes his directorial debut with this tough, yet tender family drama written by Denis O’Hare. The cast, which includes Anna Paquin, Rhys Ifans, and Cynthia Nixon, is wonderful, the film which is a road movie of healing and reflection as a family drives to collect the belongings of Colleen (Paquin), who’s recently committed suicide. The Parting Glass is a slow-burner, but the changing Midwestern climes beautifully reflect the mourning process, the heavy dark interspersed with snippets of light. There’s humor here, too, and an excellent supporting role for Ed Asner.
