9 New Images Arrive From Michael Winterbottom's 'Everyday' With Shirley Henderson & John Simm

While “The Master” and “Cloud Atlas” stormed TIFF this festival year with their sweeping performances and expansive themes (one film a little more successfully than the other, by most accounts...), it was inevitable that many other films, even from world-renowned directors, were going to fall under the radar. One such film is probably the latest from British helmer Michael Winterbottom – last seen adding to his ultra-prolific output with the drama “Trishna” – with his latest, the long-in-the-offing, “Everyday.”

While “The Master” and “Cloud Atlas” stormed TIFF this festival year with their sweeping performances and expansive themes (one film a little more successfully than the other, by most accounts...), it was inevitable that many other films, even from world-renowned directors, were going to fall under the radar. One such film is probably the latest from British helmer Michael Winterbottom – last seen adding to his ultra-prolific output with the drama “Trishna” – with his latest, the long-in-the-offing, “Everyday.

Filmed over the course of five years, with the casting of four real-life siblings (Shaun, Katrina, Stephanie, and Robert Kirk), Winterbottom has instead of simply letting a “7-Up” style documentary approach guide the narrative, used the elapsed time to provide detail and contrast to a plot that follows Karen (Shirley Henderson) dealing with her relationship with her jailed husband Ian (John Simm), in addition to raising the four kids by herself. While we weren't entirely positive when we saw it at Telluride -- especially compared to some of the reviews out there -- our review said there was emotionally rich and rewarding elements tot the film and “something admirable about the director’s eagerness not to invent some gigantic, movie-like obstacle and hew much closer to a palatable reality.” Our reviewer also wanted to mention that Michael Nyman's score is beautiful and heartrending and in that sense helps the picture feel even more moving.

“Everyday” is scheduled to play on British television later this autumn after playing the London Film Festival, and U.S. audiences should expect a theatrical run likely in 2013 (although no distributor has yet stepped up). Take a look at the images below.
