Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Mike Leigh's acclaimed social comedy Life is Sweet is one of the director's finest achievements. Depicting a summer in the life of a modern family at odds with itself, this hilarious yet tragic domestic portrait features a stellar ensemble cast - including Alison Steadman, Jim Broadbent and Timothy Spall - and remains a potent and pointed satire.

Leigh returns to the colour and terrain of his 1990 classic with A Running Jump. Commissioned by BBC Films and Film 4 to mark the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the film portrays Perry Conroy's (Eddie Marsan) frenzied efforts to sell a second hand car with the help of his frenetic family.

Special Features:

  • Fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the film and full credits
