Join us on Monday, October 7th at 7:00 p.m. at the Norwood Theatre for Sometimes, Always, Never. This British comedy-drama stars Bill Nighy, a Spinning Reels favourite.
Alan (Nighy) 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 (Sam Riley) and solve the mystery of an online player who he thinks could be Michael, so he can finally move on and reunite his family.
Here’s what some of the critics had to say:
Director Carl Hunter deploys a vivid visual style and striking production design to capture the shifting moods of a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate.
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, a Scrabble-obsessed tailor, wears his suits.
