About Lesley Manville
Leslie, thank you very much for coming to Cambridge together with Mike Leigh. Your performance in Another Year I found breath-taking. Seeing you after the screening, almost in contrast to the character you have been playing so outstandingly well, I was even more astonished how realistically you brought (I am very close to saying "lived") a fragile woman who is very different to your private self. I am taking my hat off, and hope to see you quite soon in another great film.
