  • This bittersweet drama from social realist director Mike Leigh focuses on the day-to-day activities of one not-so-jolly postman and his two supposed buddies. Deserted by his wife many years before, Stan (Eric Richard) has decided to make up for his losses by having affairs with the wives of Gordon (Timothy Spall), a complaining drunk, and Harold (Tim Barker), a deeply compassionate, though utterly clueless, husband. It is painfully evident that Stan disapproves of his actions, as well as his life, yet he continues to avoid dealing with his loneliness by pursuing these affairs. He is also avoiding his 14-year-old daughter, Tina (Lorraine Brunning), who he left at a social services home in order to shirk responsibility. When all involved participants stumble into each other at Stan's home, the truth eventually comes out, with outrageous results. With HOME SWEET HOME, Leigh turns up the confrontation notch a few levels by bringing the affairs out into the open, adding more of a melodramatic flavor to the picture. The result is another unforgettable slice-of-working-class-life drama, with standout performances from Richard, Barker, and Spall.
