WHERE ARE WE?

Director: Leigh Anthony Dehaney (Julian Zyphichore).
Kroky Viktorie Tipp cestou domů přitáhne magická síla zdi, kde jí zaujme nejen svým zevřením a pohltí průchod časoprostorem.

Vera Drake from Mike Leigh

user
This is the first time in Mike Leigh's nine feature films that he has used the name of a character in the title. There is a reason for this. Most of his other films had various characters revolving around a central theme. Here, everything revolves around one protagonist, Vera Drake, a cheerful cleaning lady, who helps everybody she can.
