A keen, if somewhat caustic, observer of British manners andmores, Mike Leigh has been hailed as a director who celebrates thelives of 'ordinary' people in his work, both in film and intheatre. Comparing and contrasting all his films from BleakMoments and High Hopes through Naked, Career Girls and Topsy-Turvyto All or Nothing, Garry Watson considers this claim, examiningthe influence and effect of each film, as well as the approach to'the real'. Through careful textual detail and wider social andliterary comparison with the works of Charles Dickens, T. S. Eliotand D. H. Lawrence amongst others, The Cinema of Mike Leigh: ASense of the Real argues ultimately for the artistic and culturalsignificance of Leigh's work as one of Britain's most respectedfilmmakers and screenwriters.
