Another Year Overview

The setting is North London, where middle-age Tom (Jim Broadbent) and Gerri (Ruth Sheen) enjoy a happy marriage. But they are surrounded by others who seem less fulfilled, including a lonely co-worker (Leslie Manville) who drinks too much and flirts with Tom and Gerri's 30-year old son (Oliver Maltman), her junior by a generation.

Divided by title cards that depict the seasons, the story unfolds over a year—touching on family and friendship, love and warmth, joy and sadness, hope and despair, a birth, a death, and inevitably the passing of time.
