This potent film from Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, 24 Hour Party People, A Cock and Bull Story) is a story of survival and love, a celebration of the small pleasures of everyday life. The father Ian (John Simm – Life On Mars, Doctor Who) is in prison. The mother Karen (Shirley Henderson – The Gruffalo, Meek’s Cutoff) has to bring up a family of four children by herself.

Filmed over a period of five years, Everyday uses the repetitions and rhythms of everyday life to explore how a family can survive a prolonged period apart. The story unfolds in a series of visits: first the family visiting the father in prison, later the father visiting the family at home. With each visit the distance between the children and their father becomes harder to bridge.

By avoiding the normal cinematic conventions of time passing, Everyday focuses on the small subtle changes as people grow up and grow old whilst being apart.
