‘Another Year,’ another press conference

Leigh weighs media's questions

Mike Leigh doesn’t suffer fools gladly.

After Oct. 4’s New York Film Festival press screening of his latest pic, “Another Year,” Leigh and cast including Jim Broadbent and Lesley Manville took the stage at the Walter Reade Theater to answer the media’s questions.

Inquiries were assessed by Leigh with a bit of British wit before he replied.

“That is a bit of a cul-de-sac of a question and I shall give it no more thought” was one response. “I don’t know if you are listening (to my answer) or playing with your iPad.” Other inferences included, “I presume your question is about … ” and “Your question is legitimate.”

Afterward at a lunch at P.J. Clark’s, Sony Pictures Classics topper Tom Bernard said laughingly, “(Leigh’s) humor is very dry. He loves being in New York and he loves being part of this festival. I know that for sure.”
