"Excellent overall, but especially one for Bill Nighy fans."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I thought this a very good, if somewhat inscrutable film. I think I will need to watch it again to truly get my head around the plot. I am a Bill Nighy fan, so watching him was the main bonus for me.

Description

A detective fantasy / family drama where a love of words helps a father reconnect with a missing son

A detective fantasy / family drama where a love of words helps a father reconnect with a missing son. 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.

Critic Reviews:

  • " 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. " – London Evening Standard
  • " Despite strong performances and a witty script, Sometimes Always Never lays on the homage a little too thick for its own good, shortchanging itself by imitating a particularly idiosyncratic style. " – Empire Magazine
  • " The result is playful yet wispy and over-finickity – the film appears to have found a director more OCD than its hero – but Nighy fans will be happy. " – Sunday Times
