    Feels like a cutout from real life put on the big screen. I can see it being called pointless, but definitely not meaningless. Every conversation and piece of small talk brings further light to the characters. There are no plot twists, yet the storytelling runs at the precise pace. Simply beautiful. The final scene, as the talking fades out and we remain in silence, was perfect.

    I'd also like to mention Manville's incredible acting and very, very interesting character. At the start it feels like she'll be much like Poppy from Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky", but she takes a completely different, much more satisfying direction. Cheers.

    Excellent. It is real life. Maybe too much. Poignant and wholly English. Mike Leigh will always be his own genre, and that is a very good thing. 9 years 11 months ago

    One of the most underrated films of 2010, Lesley Manville stands out but all the performances are great. A shame that this was so overlooked by awards ceremonies. 10 years 6 months ago
