Introducing the many faces ofLesley Manville in “Another Year” by Mike Leigh (2010): A re-look into the seemingly mundane lives of people, including Marie (played by Manville), throughout seasons and all through a year.
Dedicated to Leigh’s long-time producer, Simon Channing-Williams, the film manages to escapes caricatures & yet represents individual tragedy without cinematic crescendo. There is no exaggeration, only subtle work. There is no pretentious dialogue, only small-talk, thus adding to the film realism and great mastery. Leigh nails it again!
