Focus Features has released the Never Rarely Sometimes Always trailer, which gives you a first look at the film opening in select theaters on Friday, March 13, 2020, after it premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.
Written and directed by Eliza Hittman, 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. The cast also includes Théodore Pellerin, Ryan Eggold, and Sharon Van Etten.
Never Rarely Sometimes Always is the third feature film from Eliza Hittman (It Felt Like Love, Beach Rats). Focus Features will distribute worldwide with Universal Pictures International, excluding Free UK TV rights, which are retained by BBC Films.
Never Rarely Sometimes Always is produced by PASTEL’s Adele Romanski and Sara Murphy, the production outfit behind Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk.
The film reunites Eliza Hittman and Beach Rats cinematographer Hélène Louvart. The film was developed by BBC Films who also co-financed production alongside Tango Entertainment and Mutressa Movies. The executive producers are Rose Garnett for BBC Films, Tim Headington and Lia Buman for Tango Entertainment, Elika Portnoy and Alex Orlovsky for Mutressa Movies.
