23 November Topsy-Turvy
PG (1999 Mike Leigh) 154 mins


This most sumptuous of productions takes us to the theatrical world of 1880s London where Gilbert (Jim Broadbent) and Sullivan (Allan Corduner) are having creative difficulties. And while some of us might love The Mikado, you don’t need to be a G&S devotee to enjoy this film. Delight in the comic clash of temperaments that go into putting on a show, brought to life by an excellent supporting cast which includes Timothy Spall, Leslie Manville and Shirley Henderson to name but a few.
