Indie Trailer Sunday: Jim Broadbent in Mike Leigh's 'Another Year'
Let the controversy begin. Today's indie trailer (via Yahoo) is for British filmmaker Mike Leigh's new film Another Year starring Jim Broadbent, Lesley Manville and Ruth Sheen. Let's get to it - I hate this film. I saw it at the Cannes Film Festival this year and despised every second of it. I personally think it's one of the most pointless and boring films I've ever seen, not exaggerating, but I still realize that Mike Leigh doesn't make films for "me" and that this does indeed appeal to *ahem* the older crowd. If you're wondering why I chose it, that's the reason, simply that it might appeal to others. Oh and the acting is pretty damn good, too.

It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. Another Year arrives in limited theaters in the US starting December 29th. Anyone interested?
