Mike Leigh’s films are a testament to the power of cinema, fusing comedy with tragedy and the personal with the universal, bringing stories of ordinary working-class people to the screen with honesty and empathy. Working closely with the award-winning director, we are presenting his retrospective across the UK, with Leigh joining us live on stage to introduce and talk about his work.
