With bigamy-centric farce Run For Your Wife, widely tipped to be 2013’s worst film, on (very limited) release this week, Danny Dyer’s star has seldom been higher… although that’s not saying much, actually. But where do you stand on the great Dyer debate – is he a cheeky cockney chappie lending some much-needed levity to British cinema, or just a dreadful tossbag who should have been drowned as a child? We haven’t decided yet.
Michael Winterbottom gets to the heart of the matter with Everyday; a family drama with a difference. Winterbottom’s regulars Shirley Henderson and John Simm play parents Karen and Ian who are split apart when Ian is jailed for a decade for drug smuggling. Sitting out his term puts a strain on his four young children, played by real-life siblings. This minimalist drama takes the viewer closer to real family relationships than any British film has in years.
