A film about grief and loss will be screened in Clevedon, and Times readers can win tickets.

Sometimes Always Never will shown at the Curzon cinema, in Old Church Road, on August 4 at 7.30pm.

The film is a drama which tells the story of a family with an exceptional Scrabble vocabulary who cannot put their words to use and communicate with each other, and their journey to reconnect.

Alan, played by Bill Nighy, is a stylish tailor who has spent years searching tirelessly for his missing son, Michael, who stormed out over a game of Scrabble.

With a body to identify and his family torn apart, Alan must repair the relationship with his youngest son Peter (Sam Riley) and solve the mystery of an online player who he thinks could be Michael, so he can finally move on and reunite his family.

He sets off with Peter to visit a morgue where a body lies which may be his long lost son.

While waiting, they stay at a hotel where they meet a couple, Margaret and Arthur, on a similar mission and where the unprincipled Alan lucratively thrashes Arthur at Scrabble.

Alan later moves in temporarily with Peter, his wife Sue (Alice Lowe) and their computer-addicted teenage son Jack (Louis Healy) and settles in to obsessively play online Scrabble - in which he is convinced he has found a clue to his lost son's whereabouts.

The film is directed by Carl Hunter in his first feature film and written by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
