Don't lose sight of what you already have when searching for the elusive dream is the moral of this drama that explores the complex relationship between father and son.

The appeal of a Bill Nighy character is hard to pin down. While his overall attitude to life is pessimistic, an irresistible desire to look for the joke lurking behind the bad news keeps breaking through and brightening the picture.

The whimsy, in both script and visuals, can sometimes be grating.

Sometimes Always Never is a quintessentially British film; a damp slice of seaside village life, often ponderous and offbeat (perhaps to a fault, depending on your tolerance) but curiously endearing.

Often so self-consciously 'quirky' that you might occasionally want to scream, Sometimes Always Never is an odd, sad character piece that never really comes together, and feels fey and even twee.
