The laughs start coming around the 3:45 mark... really skewers the upper class demographic

So well observed that it's probably closer to the truth than satire.

Jim Broadbent is a superb but sadly underused British actor - I guess he's probably best known for playing Denis Thatcher in The Iron Lady or Bridget Jones' Dad

Be sure to click on the suggested link for "Nuts in May". It's a brilliant Mike Leigh play (he directed the video above), and if you can find it "Abigail's Party" is a must see too.

Why not read some stories instead

At the heart of every great comedy is a great tragedy.
