Alan is a stylish tailor with moves as sharp as his suits. But he's 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 and identify an online player who he thinks could be Michael, so he can finally move on and reunite his family. A quirky mystery/comedy starring the BAFTA winner Bill Nighy (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, LOVE ACTUALLY), SOMETIMES ALWAYS NEVER is a story about redemption, family, and finding the right words.
"There’s a terrific ensemble, but it’s Nighy who will have you enthralled. He delivers a subtle, nuanced performance that allows the actor to shine while in full support of his costars." - Los Angeles Times
"This film is a distinct, articulate pleasure." - The Guardian
"The precision in the shot composition is mirrored in the storytelling – there’s an unassuming elegance that balances the eccentricity of a film that makes something as mundane as Scrabble into a taut dramatic device." - The Observer
"Director Carl Hunter infuses 'Sometimes Always Never' with creative visual touches, whether he’s using graphics to illustrate certain Scrabble words, or shooting a poignant scene through a patterned glass door, so we feel the emotions of the character in question just through the movement of his silhouette." - Chicago Sun-Times
