Critic Reviews for Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score)

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (76) | Rotten (16)

  • On the surface, this strange film could leave you thinking that not much actually happened... but it's the idiosyncratic emotional journey, expertly portrayed by Nighy and the ensemble, rather than the destination that sticks with you.

    July 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • What the film does sustain, and quite remarkably, considering its serious theme, is a delicately comic tone. That's due in large measure to the screenplay by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

  • We remain engaged due to quiet performances made all the more impressive by how they cut through such noisy visual style.

  • It has a stylized, low-key eccentricity... Nighy is just fantastic.

    June 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • One of those comedies that teeters on the edge of being dark, irredeemable, bitter, and funny... But it's an enjoyable film.

    June 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A sometimes wobbly, sometimes engaging, always well-acted tale of family estrangement and reconciliation.
