9780571283026: Grief

1957. War widow Dorothy lives in a London suburb with her 15-year-old daughter Victoria and her older bachelor brother Edwin. More and more isolated from her married friends with their successful children, Dorothy tries to cope with Victoria's increasingly hostile behaviour. But is she doing her best, as she thinks, or is she in fact responsible for what threatens to become an unendurable situation?

'A exquisitely observed, profoundly quiet slice of 1950s suburban life.' The Sunday Times

'Meticulously evocative' Independent

'Manville is magnificent in this broodingly muted family drama.' Sunday Express

'Leigh makes you laugh and laugh - until you cry.' Time Out

'A haunting portrait of loss and loneliness, exquisitely acted throughout and led by a riveting performance by Manville.' Financial Times

'Leigh's meticulous production potently captures the pain that lurked behind stiff upper lips in the England of the Fifties.' Daily Telegraph

'Nobody gets more truthful performances from actors than Mike Leigh.' The Times

'The acting is superb.' Guardian

'Leigh directs with sensitivity.' Evening Standard

'Extraordinarily poignant' Independent on Sunday

Descrizione del libro:

Grief, the new stage work by Mike Leigh, is a devastating portrait of family dependencies and stifling domesticity.

L'autore:

Born in Salford, Manchester, in 1943, Mike Leigh has developed a unique method of creating films through controlled improvisations. After his debut Bleak Moments (1971) he made a succession of admired TV plays, including Abigail's Party and Nuts in May. He then returned to feature films: High Hopes (1988), Life is Sweet (1990), Naked (1993). Secrets and Lies won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1996. Topsy-Turvy (1999) won two Oscars. All or Nothing followed in 2002. Since then he has made the Oscar-nominated Vera Drake (2004), which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) and Another Year (2010). He also did Two Thousand Years for the National Theatre in 2005.
