Another Year

another yearA look at four seasons in the lives of a happily married couple and their relationships with their family and friends.

This is an intimate human drama told with a hint of subtlety and humor. Tom (Jim Broadbent) and Gerri (Ruth Sheen), an elderly couple who live and breath the model marriage entertain lost souls in search of refuge. In the comfort of their cosy home; happiness, truth, hilarity, sadness, introspection, and honesty unfold.

Good directors of dramatic narratives are keen observers of human behavior in all its shades and hues. By virtue of that, they invite audiences to gravitate with the film’s characters and Mike Leigh is one of them.
