With films like SECRETS & LIES, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY and NAKED, writer/director Mike Leigh has been called "the unsparing poet of the British working class" (Rolling Stone). And with this overlooked classic – made between Oscar®-winning TOPSY-TURVY and Oscar®-nominated VERA DRAKE – Leigh explores the anger, alienation and broken dreams that define the everyday lives of three families in a low-income London housing project. Timothy Spall (SWEENEY TODD, the HARRY POTTER movies), Oscar® nominees Lesley Manville (2017: Actress in a Supporting Role, PHANTOM THREAD) and Sally Hawkins (2017: Actress in a Leading Role, THE SHAPE OF WATER), Ruth Sheen (ANOTHER YEAR), Daniel Mays (1917, DES) and Emmy® winner James Corden star in "Mike Leigh's masterpiece" (Taste Of Cinema) – winner of two 2003 London Critics Circle Awards including British Film Of The Year – newly scanned from the original negative.
