About the Film
Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, British filmmaker Mike Leigh delivers a comic and emotionally honest portrait of ordinary people trying to make sense of their lives. Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen star as a middle aged couple who have a happy marriage in which they are constantly entertaining each other with their senses of humor. The story revolves around friends and co-workers who put up facades of good cheer despite lonely lives awash in too much wine. This is a moving and insightful warm-hearted look at the human condition. Another Year received its world premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
