With Alice Lowe and Carl Hunter Q&A

Long-time friend of the Festival, Carl Hunter, brings his first feature film to Keswick. Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and starring Bill Nighy, Alice Lowe and Sam Riley, Sometimes Always Never will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the Festival.

Alan (Nighy) 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.

Followed by a Q&A with Carl Hunter and Alice Lowe.


The film positively twinkles with insouciance, and is performed with aplomb… This film is a distinct, articulate pleasure.
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
