Another Year (12A)
Dir Mike Leigh/GB 2010/129 mins
Jim Broadbent, Ruth Sheen, Lesley Manville, Oliver Maltman
Mike Leigh reunites with an ensemble cast of regulars and his long-time cinematographer Dick Pope for this humourous and sensitive reflection on family, friends and growing older. Gerri and Tom are a good-hearted couple with a happy life and solid relationship with their grown up son, Joe. Their everyday moments are portrayed with Leigh’s keen eye for detail, and these moments of easy contentment contrast greatly with the unhappy lives of Mary, Gerri’s friend and Ken, Tom’s morose mate.
