Cynthia lives in London with her sullen street-sweeper daughter. Her brother has been successful with his photographer's business and now lives nearby in a more upmarket house. But Cynthia hasn't even been invited round there after a year. So, all round, she feels rather lonely and isolated. Meanwhile, in another part of town, Hortense, adopted at birth but now grown up, starts to try and trace her mother. (imdb)

Great at the time but just looks brilliant now as it really captured the 1990's. the themes are universal and timeless and still resonate.

The best scenes in S&L are the ones that play out like long plays - first meeting between Cynthia and Hortense, Roxanne's climactic birthday party. Sprinkled throughout are either great sequences, like Lesley Manville as the case worker and Maurice's former colleague Stuart. The rest dragged at points, reiterating information and emotions we'd already experienced. A beautiful Leigh film, at times transcendent.

Unique movie. The acting, and the mood is just great. The script goes from comedy to drama just so smoothly. You can love it or not, but you must admit you've never seen a movie like this before...

Heartbreaking and uplifting, Secrets & Lies is a melodrama filled with conflicting emotions. Dialogue is so good, only heightened by a tour-de-force performance by Blethyn.
