Sometimes Always Never

Sharp of both suit and vocabulary, Alan (Bill Nighy), is winningly deadpan as a Scrabble-obsessed Merseyside tailor, whose eldest son Michael stormed out of the house after a particularly heated round of the popular board game, never to return.

With his family torn apart, Alan and his other son Peter (Sam Riley) must search for Michael while also trying to repair their own strained relationship.

Working from a witty and astute script by veteran screenwriter Frank Cottrell-Boyce (The Railway Man, Goodbye Christopher Robin), Liverpudlian director Carl Hunter deploys a vivid visual style and striking production design to capture the shifting moods of a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate.

A stylish and heartfelt comedy-drama with a a triple score-worthy supporting cast including Jenny Agutter and Tim McInnerny.
