Never Steady, Never Still

Year 2017
Runtime 110 mins

A recently widowed woman with Parkinson's fights to regain her independence while her son struggles to come to terms with his sexuality.

Life on Judy's remote lakefront property has always been lonely, but beautiful. But the sudden death of her husband leaves Judy (Shirley Henderson, HARRY POTTER) thrown into a tailspin as she finds herself without a caretaker while dealing with advanced Parkinson's disease. As she struggles to maintain her independence, her son Jamie (Théodore Pellerin, IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD) is fighting a different battle of his own on an Albertan oil rig, trying to come to terms with his sexuality in an environment full of machismo. When Jamie returns home and must become his mother's caretaker, it leads to an emotional catharsis for both mother and son.

Featuring an incredible performance by Shirley Henderson and adapted from an award-winning short film, Kathleen Hepburn's debut NEVER STEADY, NEVER STILL is a heartbreaking portrayal of love's resiliency.
