just seen this film, blown away by it, speechless actually, which if you knew me is saying something. emotionally draining, fantastic acting, very depressing though...

Not much plot but the characters are so well done. Is it true Mike Leigh doesn't use scripts, the actors make up their own dialogue? It seems that way. I loved it too.

It is fabulous. Just brilliant.
And yes, the actors rehearse improvising scenes until he gets a cut he wants. Brilliant.

I haven't seen this, but I do love Mike Leigh!

I'm a bit obsessed with Career Girls at the moment- watching it for the fourth time.

Loved it. Made me tear up a wee bit. Amazing acting.
