Filmmaker Mike Leigh delivers another glimpse of British working-class life with a moving, humanistic tale capturing both the desperation and bittersweet humor of its subjects' lives. Phil (Timothy Spall), a scruffy cab driver, his common-law life Penny (Lesley Manville) and their two overweight children reside in one of South London's ubiquitous concrete housing developments. When an unexpected crisis descends upon Phil and Penny, they are forced to face and affirm some of life's timeless verities. "Richly satisfying" ("The Guardian").
