Life is Sweet 15

Part of Mike Leigh in Conversation. United Kingdom, 1990, Mike Leigh, 104m.

An intimate portrait of a working-class family in a suburb just north of London—an irrepressible mum and dad (Alison Steadman and Jim Broadbent) and their night-and-day twins, a hard-working good girl and a troubled, ill-tempered layabout (Claire Skinner and Jane Horrocks). Leigh and his typically brilliant cast create, with extraordinary sensitivity and craft, a vivid, lived-in story of ordinary existence, in which even modest dreams carry enormous weight.

Alison Steadman, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall
