              This new revised edition brings Mike Leigh's career up-to-date, with the release of Peterloo. Five-time Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner, the only British director to have won the top prize at both Cannes (for Secrets & Lies) and Venice (for Vera Drake) - Mike Leigh is unquestionab...ly one of world cinema's pre-eminent figures. Now, in this definitive career-length interview, he reflects on all that has gone into the making of his unique body of work. In their commingling of bleakness and humour, Leigh's films recreate the tragi-comic world of people whose everyday lives are far from glamorous: a world in which 'the done thing' usually prevails, contrary to our inner hopes, wants or needs. Leigh's work has always reflected its times and entered the vernacular, whether the harsh studies of Meantime and Naked or the humour of the now-legendary Abigail's Party and Nuts in May. Above all, Leigh is an accomplished storyteller, and these films deal with universal themes: births, marriages and deaths, parenthood and failed relationships, families and their secrets and lies. Within these pages Leigh speaks to Amy Raphael more openly than ever before of his life and inimitable working method, revealing himself as passionate, forthright, no sufferer of fools, but the owner of a dry and playful Mancunian wit.

              When Art's mother is accused of witchcraft, she is determined to get her back - at any cost. A lyrical adventure with folklore at its heart, for fans of THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS. The plague has recently swept the tiny Scottish town of Kelso, and now people are looking for some...one to blame. Eleven-year-old Art Flint watches from her narrow attic window as men wander the streets, branding doors with W for witch. On a still night when clouds obscure the moon, Art's mother is taken, and Art has never seen more clearly: it is far easier to be a boy in this world. Using a pair of rusty scissors, Art cuts her hair and lock by lock burns it on embers of the fire. Then she mounts her horse, and gallops towards the forest wielding a silver sword - for she is about to learn what strength lies in battle, how to trust nature's signs, and the strength and courage it will take to rise and fight for women everywhere.
