Sometimes Always Never
Sharp of suit and vocabulary, Bill Nighy plays deadpan Scrabble-obsessed Merseyside tailor Alan, whose eldest son Michael stormed out of the house after a particularly heated round of the popular board game, never to return. Years later, Alan and his other son Peter (Sam Riley) continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship. From screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce (24 Hour Party People), Sometimes Always Never is the debut feature from director Carl Hunter, capturing the shifting moods of a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate. The triple word score-worthy cast is completed by Alice Lowe, Jenny Agutter and Tim McInnerny.
