Great Britain
102 minutes

A suburban London family struggles to make ends meet but seem to do so with a can-do cheerfulness. Quietly devastating yet very funny and impeccably presented and performed comedy-drama of modern working-class life that gives a good dusting to British kitchen-sink realism.
