High Hopes

by Mike Leigh Retro: Mike Leigh

1988, a neighbourhood in King’s Cross, London: Cyril and Shirley are ‘alternatives’. Valerie’s seductive and culinary arts are all but ignored by her husband. Rupert and Laetitia Boothe-Braine prefer yuppie sex games. A melancholic, amusing observation of incompatible people and desires.
