Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Set in and around King's Cross and London's suburbs in the early weeks of 1988, 'High Hopes' examines the contrasting lives and personalities of an assortment of characters.Wayne left home because of an argument about pies. Cyril would like to machine-gun the Royal Family and placate his girlfriend. Rupert and Laetitia Boothe-Brain play yuppie sex-games. Valerie fails to arouse her husband Martin with a suggestion that he be Michael Douglas and she a virgin. And old Mrs Bender gets locked out of her house; finding herlself criticised by her neighbour for selfishly occupying a whole house in an increasingly fashionable area. This disparate cast of characters swim in and out of each others lives against a London backdrop seamlessly orchestrated by director Mike Leigh ('Secrets & Lies', 'Naked') and starring Philip Davis ('Secrets & Lies'), Philip Jackson ('Little Voice'), Edna Dore ('EastEnders') and David Bamber ('The Bourne Identity')
