Another Year
Mike Leigh's highly rated film is an intimate character study, with powerful performances. The storyline focuses on an elderly couple and their friends. One of these is a single woman getting on in years, who decides that the couple's son is just the man for her, and she throws herself into the task of winning him. This puts everyone else in a difficult position. The story winds its way over the course of one year, hence the title.
