Story


"Everyday" tells the story of four children separated from their father, and a wife separated from her husband. While the father serves a five-year prison sentence, the mother raises their four children on her own.

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 film 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. Focusing on the small subtle changes as people grow up and grow old whilst being apart, "Everyday" is a story of survival and love, a celebration of the small pleasures of everyday life.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it is a sensitive, understated film but it does require a good deal of patience on the part of the viewer..”
by Allan Hunter [Daily Express]
“..this is a small gripe in an otherwise rich, socially-astute and well-made movie..”
by David Jenkins [Little White Lies]
“..for all its innovativeness, Everyday has the rhythms and intrigue of a not-very-interesting family's Christmas letters..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]
