A film by one of Britain’s most celebrated film makers and multi-award winning director of Life Is Sweet, Naked, Secrets and Lies, Topsy Turvy and most recently Vera Drake. Fabulous Films presents for the first time on DVD this critically acclaimed slice of life dark comedy, Mike Leigh’s, HIGH HOPES.
Wayne left home because of an argument about pies. Cyril would like to machine gun the Royal family. Rupert and Laetitia Boothe-Brain play yuppie sex games, while deep in suburbia Valerie fails to arouse her husband Martin with a suggestion that he be Michael Douglas and she a virgin. Mrs Bender gets locked out of her house and is criticised by her neighbour for selfishly occupying a whole house in an increasingly fashionable area. And Cyril’s girlfriend Shirley wants to start a family, but gets no encouragement from Cyril, who feels that the world should be spared more babies until everyone already here has a job, a place to live and enough to eat.
This disparate cast of characters swim in and out of each others lives against a background of London and its suburbs seamlessly orchestrated by director, Mike Leigh.
