Life is Sweet

Wendy [Alison Steadman] somehow manages to keep smiling whilst her husband [Jim Broadbent] and their adolescent twin daughters shift from one crisis to another, aided by their useless neighbour [Timothy Spa11]. Mike Leigh's achingly funny story of a family's survival amid the pressures of life in a faceless 1950's North London suburb dovetails perfectly with Terence Davies' DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES
