Aro Favourite Topsy-Turvy


UK 1999, 169 minutes
Dir. Mike Leigh
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Showbiz, Biopic, Period - 1800s.


Aroview: Rewarding biopic of Gilbert & Sullivan's ('HMS Pinafore', 'Pirates of Penzance') creative partnership that yields not so much drama as fascinating, plentiful detail of Victorian life and stagecraft. As a rift between the partners is slowly mended in the creation of 'The Mikado', Dir. Leigh (SECRETS AND LIES) draws quirky, restrained performances from a cast that include Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall and Allan Corduner.
