Reliable character actor Bill Nighy plays Alan, a retired tailor who happens to be passionately devoted to Scrabble. Years ago one of his sons stormed out after a dispute over a Scrabble game and has not been seen since, leaving Alan heartbroken. Now Alan travels with his other son, with whom he has a strained relationship, to identify a body that may or may not be that of the missing son. Alan plays Scrabble online with strangers and becomes convinced that one regular opponent is, in fact, his lost son. Family drama combines with mystery in this witty and compassionate film set in the Liverpool region. While the film leans too much toward the ‘quirky’ for some, David Stratton found it ‘strangely endearing’. Scrabble can be serious—who knew?
