The family lives in a suburb just north of London and consists of an irrepressible mum and dad (Alison Steadman and The Iron Lady‘s Jim Broadbent) and their night-and-day twins, a bookish good girl and a sneering layabout (Claire Skinner and Jane Horrocks).
In the movie, Leigh and his cast create, with extraordinary sensitivity and craft, a vivid, lived-in story of ordinary existence, in which even modest dreams (such as the father’s desire to open a food truck) carry enormous weight.
Perched on the line between humor and melancholy, Life Is Sweet is captivating, and it was British theater director and filmmaker Leigh’s first international sensation.
The Blu-ray and DVD contain the following features:
• New high-definition digital restoration, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
• New audio commentary featuring director Mike Leigh
• Audio recording of a 1991 interview with Leigh at the National Film Theatre in London
• A booklet featuring an essay by critic David Sterritt
