The very funny and touching short film, The Short and Curlies, is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Tender yet realistically harsh in they way only Mike Leigh can do it (see previous movie pick Grown Ups), this sweet gem is impossible to forget.
You can see this occasionally on IFC and as an extra on the dvd for equally amazing but far, far bleaker masterpiece, Naked. David Thewlis is cringe worthy as the jokester Clive, and this weeks style icon Alison Steadman will leave you wanting to cry and laugh at the same time. Wonderful tuba music as well.
