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?

Distinctly and finely directed by UK filmmaker Michael Winterbottom,this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from the mother,father and children's viewpoints, draws a tangible and intimateportrayal of four children who are missing their father and a hardworking mother whom is struggling to hold her family together whilstregularly visiting her man who is incarcerated. While notable for it'snaturalistic milieu depictions, sterling cinematography bycinematographers James Clarke, Sean Bobbitt, Marcel Zyskind, SimonTindall and Anne Marie Lean Vercoe, use of sound and realism, thisnarrative-driven story where the continuity is created by repetitionsand abrupt editing depicts two interrelated studies of character andcontains a great score by English composer Michael Nyman.
This atmospheric, conversational and romantic drama about an Englishfamily which is set in the county of Norfolk in the East of England andwhere a matrimony is challenged by the distance that has and is keepinga husband and wife apart due to his past criminal actions, is impelledand reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure, subtle characterdevelopment and continuity, natural humor and dialog, ordinary andcharming characters, the modest and sincere acting performances byEnglish actor John Simm, Scottish actress Shirley Henderson and thepivotal acting performances by the child actors and actresses.
