Mike Leigh’s breakthrough film cemented his position as one of the UK’s most vital filmmakers. Andy is a professional chef and part-time DIY enthusiast who buys a decrepit hamburger van. His wife meanwhile helps out at a restaurant owned by a friend. They have two daughters. Nicola suffers from anorexia and is obsessed with men and Marxism, while apprentice plumber Natalie refuses to be stereotyped with any preconceived notion of femininity and dreams of escaping to America. A compassionate comedy about families, food, sex, anorexia, plumbing, hope, love and much else besides, it stars Alison Steadman, Jim Broadbent, Jane Horrocks, Claire Skinner and Timothy Spall. ★★★★ "Leigh has the skill to inspire with the everyday. Still one of his best." - Dee Nkabu - Empire ★★★★★ "Superbly observed satire on late-Thatcherite Britain" - David Parkinson, Radio Times
