Friends and Family

Another Year DVD coverFrom the moment you meet the delightful Tom and Gerri, you will immediately want to be their friend.  Smart, affectionate, warm, and witty, they share a relationship that is marked by mutual respect and generosity.  Others notice, too, which is why they’ve become a surrogate family for a misfit or two.  They live out friendship in a way that demonstrates support and acceptance, even when the person(s) in question would exhaust anyone else.  In Another Year, director Mike Leigh delivers an honest portrait of ordinary people who just want to be happy.  Jim Broadbent, Ruth Sheen, and Lesley Manville twinkle as their characters experience the comedy and drama of four memorable seasons.
