5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Agree More, 22 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Mike Leigh: The BBC Collection [DVD] (DVD)
As stated in most of the other reviews, this DVD collection represents the long-overdue, (near)comprehensive consolidation of Mike Leigh's work for the BBC, and illustrates the wide range of subjects he addressed during the 70s and 80s. These include (my favourite) environmental awareness (Nuts in May), city culture (Who's Who) and the Northern Ireland situation (Four Days in July). Underpinning all the works is perhaps Leigh's favourite 'obsession' class divisions, never better illustrated than in the legendary Abigail's Party. Also, not to be forgotten is Brenda Blethyn's towering performance in Grown-Ups (a role which can seen as something of a trailing for her role in Secrets and Lies). Altogether, an essential purchase.

Hello Keith,
Could you tell me if the DVD has subtitles on any of the films as my nephew is very hard of hearing.
Many thanks
Rachel

Rachel - my apologies for not responding sooner - I only just saw your question, and as I'm sure you've found out from elsewhere by now - yes the DVD does have subtitles (anything to promote the viewing of Mike Leigh's work!)
