“The perfomances are terrific...and the the direction is keen and beautifully tempered”

— Time Out


When Richard (Ray Winstone) visits a London prostitute called Naomi (ex-Eastender Jan Graveson) 9 times over 9 consecutive days, without once soliciting a single sexual favour, something is awry. Richard doesn't want sex from Naomi; but, he does want something. He wants to know everything about her: what she does, who she is and how she feels about herself.

Naomi is justifiably uncomfortable and suspicious, but she's also very intrigued. As their relationship intensifies with every visit, the suspense around Richard's motivations heightens. The outcome is both powerful and unexpected. The cinematography is intoxicating and the soundtrack hypnotic. Everything is proof that independent British cinema is alive and well.

“A lean, economical affair, Everything does wonders with its limited resources. Top drawer acting grants it a rare strength and intimacy.”
