Michael Winterbottom has made many fine movies humanising the routinely despised - asylum seekers, alleged terrorists, and so on - but with 'Everyday', his portrait of a man with a long term prison sentence, he might possibly have done better to cast a harsher light on his protagonists. John Simm's gentle character hardly seems like a major criminal; and the struggle of his wife to raise their family alone is softened by its setting in the beautiful (and beautifully lit) English countryside. The drama centres on visits, rather than the routine of prison life, and uses a fair amount of soft-focus music . It's a sensitive but surprisingly unacerbic portrait of the consequences of being sent down; in places its moving, but its also clearly non-political - don't look here for an analysis of "broken Britain".

Surprisingly soft focusReviewed bypaul2001sw-1Vote: 7/10
Take one art-house director, use non-actors in the most emotionallyengaging roles (the children) and film it over five years. There youhave it! A piece of work that receives amazing reviews and attention.Yet this drama has left me feeling strangely unmoved and disengaged. Iwasn't interested in the adults and didn't care one iota about them,perhaps through the fault of the director? The only people thatmattered to me were the kids but even their amazingly sensitive andnatural performances struggled to keep my interest. Simm and Hendersonwere good, as they always are in their work, but no better than manyother dramatic actors in far superior dramas. The scenes in Everydaywere slow, and I found the accompanying music sounded like the filmscore from a Hallmark movie. Winterbottom's final shot was somethingthat I have seen in endless films before... So why is everyoneapplauding this film? IS IT ME? Or is this truly a case of theEmperor's Clothing?
It's not very often that I enjoy a film in which very little actually happens! But "Everyday" is an exception. I saw it recently when it premiered at the BFI London Film Festival. It's a thoughtful, understated film with excellent performances. It held my interest right up until the end. And I enjoyed it very much.
Filmed over 5 years, "Everyday" is a worthy but never dull film about how a mother and her four young children cope while her husband and their father serves a term of imprisonment. Karen (Shirley Henderson) spends the time accompanying her children to and from school, trying to keep the family's home-life on a reasonably even keel and visiting her husband Ian (John Simm) with the children. At the same time, she is trying to hold down her job as a barmaid at the local pub. She is also having an affair with one of her customers.
"Everyday" examines the impact of Ian's absence on his wife and children. It does so in a naturalistic and unassuming way. There are no histrionics or very dramatic scenes. What we get are quietly effective vignettes that show how disruptive a husband and father's extended absence from home can be, particularly on young children. The acting is first rate. Henderson and Simm are very good indeed, as are all four youngsters who play the couple's children. The direction and the camera-work are also very effective. "Everyday" is a visually confident and a very impressive film. 8/10.
