The Sundance hit is out on digital to buy in the UK and Ireland on 13 May and then on VOD on 27 May.
Hittman’s film has already garnered fantastic word-of-mouth and some impressive accolades: Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival, and a Special Jury Award from Sundance.
Here’s the synopsis:
An intimate portrayal of two teenage girls in rural Pennsylvania. Faced with an unintended pregnancy and a lack of local support, Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) and her cousin Skylar (Talia Ryder) embark across state lines to New York City on a fraught journey of friendship, br avery and compassion.
Watch the trailer now:
The title is explained at the end of the trailer, though I imagine hardly anyone will get the correct order, just as with British indie Sometimes Always Never (about bereavement and loss buried beneath a Scrabble obsession, and starring Bill Nighy). Actually, it was the sudden flurry of misplaced traffic during the Sundance Film Festival to my review of Nighy’s film that alerted me to Hittman’s.
