Double Bill: Mike Leigh

MUBI Special

Vera Drake

Mike Leigh United Kingdom, 2004

Mike Leigh’s dedicated troupe of performers (including Happy Go Lucky stars Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan) are led by a spectacular Imelda Staunton in this compelling family drama: an astute and intelligent 1950s political period piece. Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

All or Nothing

Mike Leigh United Kingdom, 2002

Following his Gilbert and Sullivan period piece Topsy Turvy , Mike Leigh jumps a hundred years forward for this underrated, unsentimental family drama—set in working-class London and uniting two of his most regular collaborators: Lesley Manville (Another Year) and Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner.)
