Mike Leigh's bittersweet tale of family tensions was showered with honours, collecting nominations for 5 Oscars and 6 BAFTAs, following Brenda Blethyn's Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival. The all too accurate depiction of the final over-spilling of frustration and resentment during a birthday barbecue should set everyone up for the Christmas holidays !
