Sharp of 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 (a sensitive turn by Sam Riley) continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship. Working from a typically witty and astute script by veteran screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce (24 Hour Party People), director Carl Hunter deploys a vivid visual style and striking production design to capture the shifting moods of a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate.
