It’s been well over a year since Michael Winterbotton‘s ambitious drama “Everyday” premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals, but the gritty drama is now finding its way stateside with a proper release. And with it comes the first trailer for the movie, which makes it look well worth tracking down.
So what makes this one a bit more intriguing than all the other, hyper-realistic dramas that come down the pipe? The movie was filmed over the course of five years, with four real-life siblings (Shaun, Katrina, Stephanie and Robert Kirk), playing the children of Karen (Shirley Henderson), who has to raise the four kids on her own, while trying to maintain a relationship with her jailed husband Ian (John Simm). We caught the film at Telluride in 2012, and while we noted the tough material might not make it the most accessible picture, it’s “an interesting experiment and an emotionally resonant film that should sit well with patient viewers and cinephiles.”
Featuring a beautiful score by Michael Nyman, IFC Films will release the film on VOD and in theaters on November 22nd.
