"The youngish parents, Wendy (Alison Steadman) and Andy (Jim Broadbent) live with their 20-something twin daughters, Nicola (Jane Horrocks) and Natalie (Claire Skinner). Natalie, a plumber's assistant, is clean-cut and forever looks on the bright side of life. Nicola, who is unemployed, has nothing but contempt for conventionality. As the daughters deal with the obsessively sunny Wendy and the lackadaisical Andy, and confront a succession of ne'er-do-well friends and neighbors, a darker picture is painted of this normal family -- particularly Nicola, who is convinced she is fat and ugly (despite her emaciated appearance), with Natalie being a constant rebuke to her"--from www.allmovie.com.

I could not make it through this gritty movie. Not my jam, but maybe it's yours.

A family with some deep secrets but a lot of love. Each character seems to have their troubles and expresses them through rather normal daily decisions. The father seems a bit distant emotionally...like most fathers, however, at least he is there. He identifies himself with his food truck instead of with his family. The sisters are fantastically humorous. I'll have to watch it again.
