About the Author

Born in Salford, Manchester, in 1943, Mike Leigh has developed a unique method of creating films through controlled improvisations. After his debut Bleak Moments (1971) he made a succession of admired TV plays, including Abigail's Party and Nuts in May. He then returned to feature films: High Hopes (1988), Life is Sweet (1990), Naked (1993). Secrets and Lies won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1996. Topsy-Turvy (1999) won two Oscars. All or Nothing followed in 2002. Since then he has made the Oscar-nominated Vera Drake (2004), which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) and Another Year (2010). He also did Two Thousand Years for the National Theatre in 2005.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of imagery and litereary devices. Mike Leigh has obviously set forth much time to tell the story of a modern group of aspiring artists who fight to make it big in the theatre world. I reccommend the book, though I esteem the movie higher.

LOVELY TO FOLLOW THE FILM. IDENTIFIES CHARACTERS TO CLEAR UP ANY CONFUSION IN TE ENSAMBLE SCENES... "MISS SIXPENCE" SHOWS HOW TO WALK FOR "THREE LITLE MAIDS."
