Movies »Grown Ups

Grown Ups Mike Leigh is one of the best directors, many of his movies are favorites of mine. This small gem, however, has a special place in my heart. It is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious, and always genuine. Grown Ups tells the story of Mandy and Dick (who is kind of a dick), a young married couple with a troubled sister (the amazing Brenda Blethyn as Gloria) who move in next to their former High School teacher and his wife. Doesn't sound like much plot-wise, but it's a movie (like most of Leigh's) about people and the splendor of the banal.
