Rate this:
An amusing portrait of a working-class family in a suburb just north of London, an irrepressible mum and dad and their night-and-day twins, a bookish good girl and a sneering layabout. A vivid, lived-in story of ordinary existence, in which even modest dreams (such as the father's desire to open a food truck) carry enormous weight. Perched on the line between humor and melancholy.

I could not make it through this gritty movie. Not my jam, but maybe it's yours.

A family with some deep secrets but a lot of love. Each character seems to have their troubles and expresses them through rather normal daily decisions. The father seems a bit distant most fathers, however, at least he is there. He identifies himself with his food truck instead of with his family. The sisters are fantastically humorous. I'll have to watch it again.
