Good things come in small packages

I have to laugh when other reviewers say they kept waiting for something to happen. THIS IS A MIKE LEIGH movie!! It's already happening !!! And if you are expecting everything to come to a tidy conclusion then maybe you need to switch directors. The joy of any of Mike Leighs work is the journey, not the destination.


Why did I watch this? the characters are massively cliched, especially the married couple who are cast as having such a perfect little marriage and life in the midst of their maladjusted friends. Character development is nil, dialogue is canned, the film moves at a frustratingly slow pace and the hoped for conflict/resolution never emerges. No doubt some will enjoy this effort, though others, encouraged by the sensational reviews posted here, will be left quite disappointed and wondering why anyone would spend two hours of their lives watching this misguided attempt at profundity.

Skip it. Trust.

One of his best

Their are hints of leigh's earlier "grown ups" in this, which had that signature performance from Brenda Blethyn, but the whole film is clearly a more developed work from a master in control of his domain. Funny, beautiful, and painfully true this stands head and shoulders with his best work.
