Any road. It was like being a fly on the middleclass allotment tenants ceiling. Observing the different characters engage in this wonderful British social drama. Mary (Lesley Mandville) was the sad and often drunken character that couldn't accept middle age and being single. She was such a mixed up and yet loveable character.
Mike Leigh seemed to poise the question:
"Is anybody actually happy?"
Mary reminded me of the Sandy Thom song: "Oh what a lonely girl."
Great film and a great song. Thanks to You Tube and the people who put these videos together for us.
