NEVER STEADY NEVER STILL

NEVER STEADY NEVER STILL

Kathleen Hepburn · Canada · 2017 · 112 mins · 14A
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

What at first feels like a small story of sentimental family struggles set amongst a northern BC backdrop (the film was shot in Fort St. James) gradually unspools with painterly precision into a naturalistic, sensual, and considerably-sized poetic canvas in this assured directorial debut. An instantly gripping film, it’s buoyed by an astonishing, career-best performance from Shirley Henderson as Judy, a Parkinson’s afflicted woman, recently widowed, raising a teenage son named Jamie, who’s brilliantly portrayed by the rising young star Théodore Pellerin. It all makes for marvellous melancholy.

“Never Steady, Never Still” takes a brave and heartbreaking look at a number of provocative and taboo topics including grief work, homosexuality, promiscuity, and suicide, and handles it all with morality and aplomb. At times the flow of the film is passive and idly paced, but on its own terms it also does a slow dance that’s terribly close to perfection. Don’t miss it.  –Taste of Cinema

“Showcases a deeply affecting performance by Shirley Henderson.” The Globe and Mail
“Directed and performed with acute sensitivity, with more glimmers of sweetness and humor than the premise might suggest.” Variety
Cast Shirley Henderson, Théodore Pellerin, Mary Galloway
