Mike Leigh, the unsparing poet of the British working class (Secrets and Lies), focuses on a taxi driver (Timothy Spall), his cashier wife (Lesley Manville) and their two obese children. Leigh isn't breaking new ground, but he knows how a daily grind can kill love. Strong stuff.

"If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
