Reel Britannia - a very British podcast about very British movies...with just a hint of professionalism.
This week, join Scott and Steven as they review Mike Leigh's tale of twins, pineapples, burger vans and and chocolate coated sex.
Life Is Sweet (1990)
The working-class malaise of suburban London is captured in this comedic drama, which focuses on twin sisters Natalie (Claire Skinner) and Nicola (Jane Horrocks) and their parents: easygoing Andy (Jim Broadbent) and his optimistic wife, Wendy (Alison Steadman). While Natalie has a plumbing job, and tends to take after her mom with her bright outlook, Nicola is on the dole and perpetually dwells on the negative. Will the cloud over Nicola's head ever lift?
"Take my word for it - that is an evil spoon."
