Synopsis

This moving film from Mike Leigh (TOPSY-TURVY) 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 lay-about (Claire Skinner and Jane Horrocks). in it, Leigh and his typically brilliant cast create, with extra, ordinary 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, LIFE IS SWEET is captivating, and it was Leigh's first international sensation.
