Never Rarely Sometimes Always, gets early digital release

Because of the pandemic, Eliza Hittman’s empathetic film about a teen seeking an abortion has been released to a broad audience online.

Eliza Hittman’s latest Sundance film Never Rarely Sometimes Always, played in theatres in early March just for three days before Focus Features pulled the film amidst the widespread and unprecedented coronavirus-related closures. After more than a month of lost time, the film got its digital release in early April with 19.99 rental price. 


Film follows Autumn - starring splendid first-time actress Sidney Flanigan- a pregnant teen in the small-town community that doesn't seem supportive or openminded. As Autumn is trying to escape the stigma and gossip, she takes the matter to her hands, from the first medical examination trough the decision not to have a baby to her trip to New York, accompanied by her cousin Skylar -starring another first-time actress Talia Ryder- where she hopes to arrange the abortion.


Never Rarely Sometimes Always, received a Sundance Special Jury Award for Neo-Realism and the Silver Bear at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival.
