LIFE IS SWEET -  BLU-Ray & DVD Editions 
[font=" Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial; font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; text-align: -webkit-auto; "]This moving film from Mike Leigh ([/font]Topsy-Turvy[font=" Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial; font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; text-align: -webkit-auto; "]) is an intimate, invigorating, and amusing portrait of a working-class family in a suburb just north of London—an irrepressible mum and dad (Alison Steadman and Jim Broadbent) and their night-and-day twins, a bookish good girl and a sneering layabout (Claire Skinner and Jane Horrocks). In it, Leigh and his typically brilliant 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, [/font]Life Is Sweet[font=" Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial; font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; text-align: -webkit-auto; "] is captivating, and it was Leigh’s first international sensation.[/font]
