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

For all its innovativeness, Everyday has the rhythms and intrigue of a not-very-interesting family's Christmas letters.

An admirable idea in theory proves to be a real slog to sit through.

...hopelessly uninvolving for much of its brief-yet-not-brief-enough running time.

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

It's ultimately let down by its resolutely minimalist approach to both plot and dialogue.

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.

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.

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.

The raw talent and emotion on display here is nothing short of masterful.

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.

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

An affable kitchen sink drama distinguished by astonishing turns from the kids Michael Winterbottom watched grow over five years.

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

This could have been your average prison drama, all nasty warders and slamming doors. But it's not.

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

Guardian
September 13, 2012
This is a strange and stirring film, which combines a Malick-ish concern with the emotional import of nature with a rare charm and levity. Everyday is a red letter treat.

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

The film's day-to-day aches are quiet and lovingly rendered.
