It's fitting that Another Year opens this weekend. The British dramedy orbits around Tom & Gerry, a long-married couple who remain in simple bliss despite boundless negativity from friends & family. The film itself is the product of another happy marriage: that of writer/director Mike Leigh (Happy-Go-Lucky, Vera Drake) and his stable of character actors, including Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge), Ruth Sheen (Run, Fatboy, Run), Lesley Manville (Disney's A Christmas Carol) & Peter Wight (Hot Fuzz).
