UK film classification.htm  The Closer We Get

We witness the 50-year relationship of her parents - Ann and Ian - from glimpses of family archive to their present intimacy, unexpectedly-renewed in old age and shared with Karen on camera. The wisdom and wit of Karen's mother Ann, severely physically disabled, floors our expectations and shows us a mischievous and powerful figure still at the helm of her life and of this film. Just weeks before Ann's near-fatal stroke in 2008, Karen had made a pact with her to make a film together. Despite being in Ann's words, 'rivetingly normal' , they both knew their family story was anything but that. It's just that its protagonist - Karen's father, the endearing yet unfathomable Ian - isn't much of a talker, so they were going to have to do the detective work themselves.
