First screened in 1980 as part of the BBC's Playhouse strand, Grown-Ups is one of Mike Leigh’s most pointed explorations of class differences in contemporary Britain. The film focuses on the parallel lives of a working-class couple, Dick and Mandy (Phil Davis and Lesley Manville), and their middleclass neighbours. After moving into a new council house, Dick and Mandy discover that the private house next door is owned by their old teacher Mr Butcher (Sam Kelly). Laced with comedy Grown-Ups explores how class can impact on attitudes to even the most everyday things.
