Film 1 hour 31 minutes


Director: Carl Hunter. Starring: Bill Nighy, Sam Riley, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe, Tim McInnerny. UK 2018. 87 mins.

With a witty script from veteran screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce and a striking visual style from director Carl Hunter reminiscent of the work of Wes Anderson and Aki Kaurismäki, this quirky and moving comedy-drama tells the story of a family with an exceptional Scrabble vocabulary who cannot put their words to use and communicate with each other. A superb Bill Nighy stars as Alan, a Scrabble-obsessed tailor on a journey to reconnect with his two sons.
