Bleak Moments

1h 51m Drama, Comedy 1971

AroView: Director Mike Leigh’s first feature is a despairing yet extraordinary slice-of-life drama set in suburban London and centered around a young secretary, her intellectually disabled sister, her aloof and uneasy teacher boyfriend, a bizarre neighbor and an irritating workmate.

“It is a first film by a young British director who exhibits in every scene a complete mastery of the kind of characterization he is attempting. This film is a masterpiece, plain and simple, and that is a statement I doubt I will ever have cause to revise.” ~Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times (c.1971)
