Moment by moment, it all adds up. The scenes of the family huddling and hugging, greeting and parting, and reaffirming primal bonds are quietly moving.

Set in a seaside town, there are quite lovely images of the ocean and fields... When a flock of geese is captured gliding through the sky, the camera seems to positively lust after them, because so little else is happening.

Everyday isn't just about time; in a sense, that's all it is.

For better and for worse-mostly for worse-it sticks to the mundane promise of its title.

Even with the actors' laudable work-especially Simm, who finally shakes off the notion that he's a poor man's Simon Pegg-there's not enough going on past the temporal trick to make the humanistic elements pop.

Wise and involving ...

Here there is glory in the lives of simple, unprivileged folk and the more-or-less banal events of their daily lives.

An admirable idea in theory proves to be a real slog to sit through.
David Lee Dallas
Slant Magazine
November 18, 2013
While the film charts its protagonist's gradual progression toward a renewed sense of agency and freedom, it rarely indulges in lengthy or even linear narrative arcs.

Everyday might be [Michael Winterbottom's] most ambitious yet, even if it feels like his most modest.

Utilising fluid shots of the English countryside set to one of Michael Nyman's most dynamic scores, Winterbottom makes something surprisingly lyrical of the non-story

It deserves its cinematic release, thanks to its lingering, poetic-realist images of uncluttered Norfolk landscapes and to Michael Nyman's yearning score.

The sense that we're peeking in on the life of a family under exceptional stress is profound...
Philip French
Observer (UK)
January 20, 2013
It's a sad, undramatic, well observed slice of minimalist realism, an interesting experiment in helping us to share the experience of time slowly passing. But little more.
Allan Hunter
Daily Express (UK)
January 18, 2013
It is a sensitive, understated film but it does require a good deal of patience on the part of the viewer.

London Evening Standard

The performances are suitably naturalistic but the script is weak. It often feels like a lazy, if worthy, attempt to convince middle-class audiences that prisoners are human beings.

[A] resolutely realistic drama about a prisoner and his family visits.
