  • Director Mike Leigh delivers another raucous social comedy with NUTS IN MAY. Keith (Roger Sloman) and Candice-Marie (Alison Steadman)--an interminably smug, self-satisfied English couple--settle down for a 10-day holiday at a rural camping site. It isn't long before their peaceful trip is disturbed with the arrival of Ray (Anthony O'Donnell), a college student who blasts his radio continually. Tensions between the campers are eventually calmed, but Candice-Marie's newfound admiration for Ray sparks friction between her and Keith. When Finger (Stephen Bill) and Honky (Sheila Kelley) arrive, their lack of respect for the rules culminates in a near physical brawl.

    In traditional Leigh fashion, the director lets his story develop at a leisurely pace, concentrating more on character development for the film's first two acts. By the time the new campers threaten Keith's strict moral values by breaking the rules and starting a fire, each character has become a completely distinct individual, resulting in an argument that is hysterical and moving at the same time. As the snooty Keith and Candice-Marie, Sloman and Steadman deliver supremely convincing performances along with the supporting players, who add hilarity and class conflict to the proceedings.
