Genre: Comedy, Drama, Mystery. Dir: Carl Hunter. Country: UK.
Sharp of both suit and vocabulary, Bill Nighy is winningly deadpan as Scrabble-obsessed Merseyside tailor Alan, whose eldest son Michael stormed out of the house after a particularly heated round of the popular board game, never to return. Years later, Alan and his other son Peter (Sam Riley) continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship. A stylish and heartfelt comedy-drama of a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate.
