Life Is Sweet / A Running Jump Blu-Ray + DVD
One of its celebrated director's most admired and affecting films, Life is Sweet depicts a summer in the life of a modern working-class family surviving in Thatcher's Britain. Andy (Jim Broadbent) is a professional chef and DIY enthusiast who buys a decrepit burger van. His wife Wendy (Alison Steadman) helps out with the launch of a Parisian-themed restaurant, The Regret Rien. One daughter, Nicola (Jane Horrocks), suffers from bulimia and is obsessed with men and Marxism, while the other, Natalie (Claire Skinner), is an apprentice plumber who dreams of escaping to America. This hilarious yet tragic domestic portrait features a dazzling ensemble performance and remains a potent, true-to-life story.
