Living the Dream (DVD)
Philip Glenister and Lesley Sharp star in a post-Trumpian comedy about a Yorkshire family who relocate to Florida to start a new business venture - a trailer park. What could possibly go wrong?
Lesley Sharp and Philip Glenister play Yorkshire couple Mal and Jen Pemberton, who take their teenage kids, Tina and Freddie, to run a trailer park in Florida.
It seems their purchase was a blind and naive one as they soon discover their new lives at The Kissimmee Sunshine Park isn't going to be smooth sailing - at least if the territorial and stubborn rednecks who dominate the park have anything to do with it.
The fear of change and outsiders is a theme that feels familiar to viewers and although there is no direction mention of current political affairs, it embodies the stereotype of Trumps America.
With the hillbilly, confederate flag wearing characters who epitomises what we identify those who support the unlikely President, there is much we can identify in this comedy with.
Peppered with political references, this is lighthearted and very funny. There are many likeable characters, including the shows leads, a middle-aged couple who drag their two children out of their Yorkshire home to uproot in the USA in search of the American dream life.
