Mike Leigh’s (Mr. Turner) hilarious, bittersweet comedy is an unmissable and moving slice of real life.
Hortense (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) is a young, black optometrist whose adoptive parents have recently died. Cynthia (Brenda Blethyn) is a sad, unmarried mother who works in a factory and lives in a shabby terraced house with her confrontational daughter Roxanne (Claire Rushbrook). Cynthia’s brother Maurice (Timothy Spall) is a successful photographer who lives comfortably in suburbia with his wife Monica (Phyllis Logan).
In a misplaced effort to re-unite the family, Maurice & Monica throw a small barbecue party for Roxanne’s 21st birthday. When Cynthia brings along her new friend Hortense, chaos ensues and some painful truths are revealed.
