    So I'm an hour home from the latest Mike Leigh film, Another Year. Leigh's films always leave me in a place in my head that is both sober and buzzy. This film, like the others I've seen, has given me a lot to think about: the nature of happiness; the nature of anxiety and disquiet; what luck has to do with it all.
