The Mend ★★★★

"Who else can turn the line 'Go make me a fucking sandwich' into one of the most romantic things said on screen this year, launching an operatic, beautiful close that’s at once Margaret as well as Mike Leigh’s Naked?

It pushes, challenges, and breaks us for its running time, and leaves us in a state of beautiful, haunting bliss. "

Seek this one out folks (and DON'T STEAL IT, jeez). Reviewed on the podcast.
