Life Is Sweet Blu-ray

Life Is Sweet Blu-ray Director Mike Leigh escapes the confines of direct-to-television films with this incredibly bittersweet slice-of-life comedy about a blue-collar family living in modern-day England Wendy (Alison Steadman) and Andy (Jim Broadbent) are a good-natured couple with two daughters Nicola (Jane Horrocks) and Natalie (Claire Skinner) As different as two sisters could possibly be Natalie is jovial and optimistic while Nicola is a discontented cynic with contempt for everything she encounters When Andy breaks his foot and strikes upon the idea to buy a hot dog van Wendy is reminded of what she loves--and loathes--about her husband Gradually Nicola is revealed to have a potentially dangerous eating disorder and by the time tensions between the sisters erupt Wendy must gather all her strength to keep the family together With LIFE IS SWEET Leigh has pulled off a remarkable feat He has made a film that is at once a raucous comedy a poignant drama and a heartfelt tearjerker setting the standard for all slice-of-life films that follow In addition to the spot-on performances of Steadman Broadbent Horrocks and Skinner Leigh regulars David Thewlis and Timothy Spall appear to add even greater depth--and comic relief--to the proceedings
