The new Oscar-nominated film from Mike Leigh, writer-director of SECRETS AND LIES, TOPSY-TURVY, VERA DRAKE, and HAPPY-GO-LUCKY.
“Not quite every year brings a new Mike Leigh film, but the years that do are blessed with his sympathy, penetrating observation, and instinct for human comedy. By that I don’t mean ‘comedy’ as in easy laughter. I mean that comedy that wells up from movies and allows us to recognize ourselves in characters both lovable and wretched. Leigh’s ANOTHER YEAR is like a long, purifying soak in empathy.” (Roger Ebert, 4-out-of-4 Stars)
“Splendidly rich and wise.” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times)
“In the hands of master filmmaker Mike Leigh, the everday becomes the extraordinary.” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)
“Just watch the magnificent Lesley Manville, in a raw and riveting award-class performance that exposes a grieving heart under siege. Her last scene is quietly devastating. So is this intimate miracle of a movie.” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)
