If you've seen a Mike Leigh film, you know that they are very talky and seemingly aimless, gaining their power from the slow accumulation of detail. This film is no different. Poppy is an extremely cheerful Londoner who ends up taking driving lessons from the angry, xenophobic Scott. Things proceed in a meandering way, until suddenly their relationship comes to a devastatingly emotional climax that is hard to shake.

It's great to see someone applying wit, intelligence and critical thinking to the films I admire, instead of the ones I'm supposed to admire!
