Leigh uses a somber cello-rich score to infuse this quotidian suffering with a mystical edge and high-culture gloss -- and yet, thanks to the generally enthusiastic performing, the movie borders on farce.
A tough go, but Leigh's depth and rigor, and his skill at inspiring accomplished portrayals that are all the more impressive for their lack of showiness, offsets to a notable degree the film's often-mined and despairing milieu.
