Edna Doré in High Hopes

High Hopes

1988 NR

Working-class couple Cyril (Philip Davis) and Shirley (Ruth Sheen) becomes obsessed with socialism while Cyril's pretentious sister Valerie (Heather Tobias) contends with her cheating husband in this slice-of-life examination of class barriers in late 1980s London. Edna Doré co-stars as the siblings' forgetful mum in the ensemble dramedy, an early work from director Mike Leigh, whose distinct style relies heavily on actor improvisation.
