Like Mike Leigh? Try Bad Behaviour.
We really enjoyed this film. It's a witty, spontaneous, engaging story of marriage(s). It's well-cast with actors who are utterly believable. Camera work is so good, great close-ups; captures authentic emotion and business. Sub-plot involves teens and kids - they are equally good and believable.
Set in London, the row houses and streets have such appeal. The age of this film does not diminish its value; some of the phones, the typewriters, etc., are visible much of the time but in no way distract from the contemporary validity of the story or its people.
See this movie if you are weary of TV snark, exploding bodies, car chases, buckets of blood. We will see this again, with some of our kids who've not been exposed to Mike Leigh or some of the good actors from the UK. You will be delighted!
