Sometimes Always Never

"Bill Nighy is a debonair delight in this charming, elegant, whimsical and unexpectedly moving gem of British comedy-drama mystery." - Daily Mirror

"Sometimes Always Never is a quiet, funny, sad, quirky delight, beautifully written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, and directed with tremendous style by first-timer Carl Hunter. Seek it out if you can. It has a superb central performance by Bill Nighy, and first-class support from, among others, Jenny Agutter, Tim McInnerny and Sam Riley.

"Bill Nighy plays Alan, a world-weary Scrabble obsessive who is trawling North Yorkshire for his missing, and clearly beloved, son, Michael. This causes tension with his resentful younger son, Peter (a nicely brittle Sam Riley), especially when Alan moves into Peter’s family home, from where he will continue his seemingly deluded quest (he tracks online Scrabble players, convinced that Michael is communicating with him in code).

"Given time, however, everything makes sense as the movie itself, via bold art direction, becomes the very literal and very visual expression of Alan’s heightened mental state. The sweet emotional payoff is an unexpected reward." - UK Times
