Another Year may be (Leigh's) most accomplished work as a framer of images, such is the apparent ease with which he captures the interplay of his cast, but it may also be his least affecting study as a class-based character piece.
Acutely observed but gloomy and lacking narrative, it tells of 12 months in the life of a decent but dull suburban couple and their friends, most of whom you would go out of your way to avoid at a party.
Told over four acts (one for each season), Leigh and his note perfect cast have crafted a bitterly funny tale of sadness and frustration, where life, contrary to what Leigh's earlier film titles suggest, is rarely sweet or happy-go-lucky.
