Mike Leigh's social comedy is set in a lower-middle class household in a London suburb. Parents Wendy, (Alison Steadman) and Andy, (Jim Broadbent) and their twin daughters Natalie and Nicola are a modern family at odds with itself. Nicola's gloomy outlook and eating disorder are at the centre of the story. Also included is the 18 minute short 'The Short and Curlies' about a chemist's shop assistant and a joke-telling customer.
