Sometimes Always Never (12A) 89mins

Alan is a stylish tailor with moves as sharp as his suits. He has spent years searching tirelessly for his missing son Michael who stormed out over a game of Scrabble. With a body to identify and his family torn apart, Alan must repair the relationship with his youngest son Peter and solve the mystery of an online player who he thinks could be Michael, so he can finally move on and reunite his family. Starring Bill Nighy, Alice Lowe, Jenny Agutter, Sam Riley, Tim McInnerny, Andrew Shim, Louis Healy and John Westley

'There’s a beguiling Englishness to this elegant, offbeat comedy-drama, terrifically written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce and directed by feature debutant Carl Hunter. ... The film positively twinkles with insouciance, and is performed with aplomb, particularly by Bill Nighy' ****The Guardian

'a quiet, funny, sad, quirky delight...' ****Daily Mail

'a distinct, articulate pleasure' **** The Guardian

'a superb central performance by Bill Nighy...he's compellingly watchable...' ****Daily Mail

'Let's face it, in a grey world, who can resist Nighy extolling the "elegant precision" of a typographical font?'  ****Radio Times

'Screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce, who adapted the film from his own short story, has crafted a joy of a script, which seeds its themes as elegantly as Nighy's character, Alan, a Scrabble-obsessed tailor, wears his suits' ****Observer

'quietly delightful' ****The Times

'I was really surprised by how much it moved me, how touched I was...'  Kermode and Mayo

'Finally, a film that grasps the true beauty of Scrabble'  The Telegraph

'An off-beat comedy written by Frank Cottrell Boyce in which Bill Nighy plays a controlling, mordantly witty Scouser coming to terms with the unwritten rules of life'  Evening London Standard
