6. Mr. Turner
After years of supporting ensemble casts of thespians, Timothy Spall finally gets his chance to shine in a character driven drama as the lead. Based on the life of the famous J.M.W. Turner, “Mr. Turner” was in competition for ‘Palme d’Or’ and won its actor Timothy Spall, the ‘Best Actor’ award. It will be interesting to see how a period drama fits into Mike Leigh’s oeuvre coming from his two recent successes – “Another Year” and “Happy-Go-Lucky”.
