To give them hope she must tell their story.
A special screening to tie-in with the inaugral 2020 Manx Scrabble Championship!! An elegant British comedy-drama starring Bill Nighy as Alan, a retired, Scrabble-obssessed, Merseyside tailor – as well as bringing dry wit and emotional warmth to his character, Nighy also nails an engaging and consistent voice. Decades ago, Alan’s eldest son stormed off over a game of Scrabble and since then Alan, a formidable and quietly intelligent man, has steadily retreated into his habits and eccentricities to shield himself from the cares of the world. Alan has been obsessively searching for him ever since, leaving his relationship with his youngest son strained.
“This film is a distinct, articulate pleasure.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
