Jim Broadbent in 'Topsy-Turvy'

Mike Leigh's new dramedy 'Another Year' stars Jim Broadbent as half of an affectionate, long-married couple, a role the actor comfortably inhabits, having played a few variations on it (including Leigh's own 'Life Is Sweet'). This is no knock on director or actor. Leigh, who has been entertaining us with his seriocomic slices of British life since 1988's 'High Hopes,' doesn't disappoint with his latest film, and Broadbent brings authentic charm and warmth to his character.

It's Leigh's third movie with Broadbent, whose diverse resume has spanned comedies high and low, romcoms, musicals, serious drama and Harry Potter; and whose seamless, subtle performances make him utterly believable in every role he plays.
