Sometimes Always Never (PG)

Sometimes Always Never movie poster

Sharp of both suit and vocabulary, Nighy, is winningly deadpan as 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 continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship.

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