Cert: 12 Year: 1999 Length: 160 mins
Mike Leigh's story of William Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan staging the first performance of The Mikado, this is a beautiful period drama, a musical extravaganza and an intelligent critique Victorian values. We are treated to a highly comic glimpse of the theatre company's lives, excerpts from the G&S operettas, and Oscar-winning costume and make-up, a cinematic treat.
A hilarious, tender, intimately detailed and passionately humane panoply of life that is, quite simply, superb.
