Although he’s released at least a film every year for the last decade, the prolific Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People, The Killer Inside Me, Trishna) is yet again surprising us. For the last five years the director has been shooting the drama Everyday just a few weeks at a time, capturing a man (John Simm) who is incarcerated for drug smuggling, yet trying to maintain a relationship with his wife (Shirley Henderson) and four children. After years of work, he’s now set to premiere the film in just a few weeks at TIFF.
After the first photos were revealed last week, we’ve now get the first festival teaser which is made up of two clips. There’s not too much to go on, but we get a glimpse of a car ride (likely not one as funny as Winterbottom captured in his last film, The Trip) and then some gorgeously shot footage of a family reuniting in the woods. While the director sometimes throws up a miss, simply due to his rapid output, I love his approach here and can’t wait to see what he comes up with. Check out the trailer below.
TIFF kicks off on September 6th.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half.
