The title's a misnomer, as the lives of a dysfunctional group of lonely South-Londoners bear out. Director Michael Winterbottom doesn't dissect, proselytize or paint a rosy picture of the working-class existence of a long-married couple, their three daughters and one son. In the course of a holiday weekend, he trains the camera on his characters and records their discord in all its faceted hues.
