Life Is Sweet

(Mike Leigh, 1990)

The first film to garner international attention for Leigh, Life Is Sweet is a humorously intimate portrait of a daffy, post-Thatcher, working-class family in London comprised of polar-opposite twin sisters, an easygoing father who dreams of running his own food truck, and a mother who provides a running commentary on everything. With Jim Broadbent, Alison Steadman, Timothy Spall, and Jane Horrocks. (103 mins., DCP)
