This moving film from MIKE LEIGH (Topsy-Turvy) is an intimate, invigorating, and amusing portrait of a working-class family in a suburb just north of London—an irrepressible mum and dad (ALISON STEADMAN and JIM BROADBENT) and their night-and-day twins, a bookish good girl and a sneering layabout (CLAIRE SKINNER and JANE HORROCKS). In it, Leigh and his typically brilliant cast create, with extraordinary sensitivity and craft, a vivid, lived-in story of ordinary existence, in which even modest dreams (such as the father's desire to open a food truck) carry enormous weight. Perched on the line between humor and melancholy, Life Is Sweet is captivating, and it was Leigh's first international sensation.
