Never Rarely Sometimes Always set for UK release this May
James R | On 17, Apr 2020
Never Rarely Sometimes Always will be released on digital this May, we can officially confirm.
From Universal Pictures and Focus Features, the urgent and poignant drama is the latest from Beach Rats director Eliza Hittman. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and walking away with a Special Jury award, the film went on to win the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, making it one of the more anticipated indie films of the year.
The film is 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, bravery and compassion.
While it was released on digital in the US earlier this month – and mistakenly added to Amazon Prime Video for a few hours, before being taken down – we can now confirm that it will finally be available to stream for audiences in the UK and Ireland from 13th May.
The film will be available through retailers including Sky Store, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and Apple TV (iTunes) to purchase (EST) at the typical download price of around £13.99 – as opposed to the premium VOD rental option (£15.99 for 48 hours) taken by Universal on its early digital release of Trolls World Tour, The Hunt, Emma and The Invisible Man. It will then be available to rent online from 27th May.
