Joanna Hogg United Kingdom, 2010

Diderot's rating of the film Archipelago

Bourgeois leisure time is never more tense and foreboding (and moving) than in Hogg's wildly intelligent, observant, and affectionately imagined anti-dramas. Lydia Leonard is brilliant here as the woman who defiantly sends her mis-cooked food back to the kitchen only to learn that it is, after all, supposed to be that pink in the middle.
