Movie of the month - Another Year

Another Year
Life's not always kind," a character observes in ANOTHER YEAR and that shopworn but resonant phrase exactly captures the melancholy, but forgiving, message in the newest film from celebrated director Mike Leigh (Secrets and Lies, Vera Drake, Life Is Sweet). In this North London-set drama, married couple Gerri and Tom have managed to remain blissfully happy into their autumn years but are surrounded, over the course of the four seasons of one average year, by friends, colleagues, and family - who all seem to suffer some degree of unhappiness. With its resonant script and brilliant ensemble acting, it’s easy to see why ANOTHER YEAR has been acclaimed as “OUTSTANDING” and “ONE OF THE VERY BEST FILMS IN MIKE LEIGHS CAREER” (The Daily Telegraph). ANOTHER YEAR premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in competition for the Palme d'Or. Starring Jim Broadbent (And When Did You Last See Your Father?), Lesley Manville (Vera Drake) and Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake)
