Mike Leigh's Another Year trailer online
A trailer is online for Mike Leigh's latest film Another Year. The film follows an elderly couple and their family and close friends over the course of just another year and stars some great names from the leads of Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen, to Lesley Manville, Peter Wight, David Bradley, Karina Fernandez, Phil Davis and Imelda Staunton.
Great line-up and a Mike Leigh film is always a delight, but I have to express quite a disappointment with the trailer.
The trailer for Another Year tells us a few things; there are big name actors, some very emotional moments, and a joke or two. Other than that the trailer doesn't really tell us the story or point us in the right direction, and ultimately it's a little disappointing.
Of course Mike Leigh, the actors and what we expect from the blurb are the draws, but if this trailer hits someone who doesn't know Leigh's work I would suspect it would fall very flat.
