The Lithgow Valley Film Society is screening a new release movie this week titled 'Sometimes Almost Never' (PG, 2019).
You'd expect a drama about loss, love and regret to be heavy and dramatic, but 'Sometimes Always Never' is not. This delightfully offbeat British movie starring Bill Nighy and Sam Riley and directed by Carl Hunter has a surprisingly light touch and manages to be emotionally moving without being overwrought.
'Sometimes Always Never' is eccentric and stylised enough that it's unlikely to appeal to a broad audience, but those who do seek it out will be rewarded. Alan [Nighy] has been searching for his son Michael for some time. Years earlier Michael walked out of the family home after an argument over a game of Scrabble. He's not been seen or heard from since.
It will screen on Friday, December 6 at 10.30am and Sunday, December 8 at 2pm at the Society's Main Street cinema.
