Product Information
Bleak Moments is Mike Leigh's first feature film, a haunting and disturbing study of a young woman's isolation in the late 1960's. Sylvia leads a very quiet life caring for her mentally ill sister Hilda but both the sister's urgent longing for companions is left thwarted as they are unable to interact with other people socially. Bleak Moments was first released in 1971 and is released for the first time on DVD, here with a contemporary commentary by director Mike Leigh. Bleak Moments sits fittingly in Mike Keigh's cannon of work which include the award winning Secrtes & Lies, Naked and Life is Sweet.
