See in Another Year with style as the powerful and outstanding triumph that is one of BAFTA® award winning director Mike Leigh's best films to date, is released on DVD on 28th February 2011 by Momentum Pictures.
Mike Leigh cast his regular British collaborators Jim Broadbent (Vera Drake, Topsy-Turvey, Any Human Heart), Lesley Manville (All or Nothing, Secrets and Lies), Ruth Sheen (Secrets and Lies, High Hopes, Vanity Fair) and Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake, Cranford) as well as Peter Wight (Vera Drake, Hot Fuzz, Lark Rise to Candleford), Oliver Maltman (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Martin Savage (Extras, Family Guy).
Called "a rich and deeply compassionate film by The Guardian, Another Year is a touching story which follows happily-married couple Tom (Broadbent) and Gerri (Sheen) and their friends and family over four seasons. Featuring love and warmth, joy and sadness, hope and despair, companionship and loneliness, a birth and a death...
Shortlisted for the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2010 and expected to garner a clutch of statuettes before the award season is out, Another Year is at times funny, at times sad but very much Mike Leigh at his best and an absolute must see for fans of British cinema.
