Aro Recommended Another Year

 

UK 2010, 129 minutes
Dir. Mike Leigh
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric

 

“A masterful exploration of aging, family bonds, strength and loneliness.”~Andrew Hedley, flicks.co.nz

Aroview: A happily married middle-aged couple attempt to fix up their cheery, if secretly depressed friend in this honest domestic drama, another winner from dir. Mike Leigh.

Told over four seasons in the director's unapologetically conservative style, he replays his many trademark motifs and archetypes of 'happy' and 'sad' people that is not always comfortable, and not above histrionics. Here, however, his characters are given ample time and room to rewardingly flourish, and Lesley Manville in particular, as a wine-swilling forty-something lonely-heart, proves as memorable and moving as any of Leigh's screen heroines.
