A little bit hopeless
Halfway through the film Another Year, I was really tempted to turn it off. There's so much loneliness in it, and that's not necessarily good watching for me at the moment.
However, I couldn't stop watching because it was all so well done. The actors and dialogue are so normal that it doesn't feel like much is being conveyed, but I think it really was. The character of Mary was worth spending the time with all by herself and there were many others who were interesting to watch.
Sad and a bit hopeless, yes, but still a pretty wonderful film.
