From the five time Academy Award® nominated, and Bafta Winning director, Mike Leigh comes the critically acclaimed Another Year. Starring Jim Broadbent (Iris, Vera Drake), Ruth Sheen (Vera Drake) and Lesley Manville (Secrets and Lies), ANOTHER YEAR is a richly rewarding ensemble drama.
Over the course four season's, Mike Leigh has us delve into the lives of happily-married couple Tom (Jim Broadbent) and Gerri (Ruth Sheen). As the seasons change, they are visited by friends and family. These include their 30-year old son Joe (Oliver Maltman), a community lawyer, and their friend Ken (Peter Wight), a tragic figure who puts on a brave face despite his meaningless life and Gerri's emotionally unstable colleague Mary (Lesley Manville).
As the follow-up to his award-winning 'Happy Go Lucky', Leigh's Another Year is an insightful study of British life. Featuring a Bafta and Golden Globe nominated performance by Lesley Manville, Another Year is a superb, character driven film from one of Britain's most celebrated auteurs.
