The film that many people believe is going to make Jane Horrocks a big star is called "Little Voice," and at first glance, the title seems to fit. Horrocks, the 5-foot-2-inch actress best known in America for playing Bubble on the hit British television comedy "Absolutely Fabulous," plays a painfully shy girl--nicknamed "L.V." for her tiny whisper--who privately mourns her late father by listening to his classic record collection.

No one makes films like England's Mike Leigh. Thanks to Leigh's impeccable instincts about authentic human moments, we don't merely watch the funny/sad lives of a British working-class family in this follow-up to Leigh's "High Hopes," we experience them with a level of emotional authenticity few pictures approach. Brazen, quirky, enormously sympathetic, unlike what you're used to seeing. Starring Alison Steadman, pictured left with Jane Horrocks (BRAVO Monday at 5 p.m., again at 11 p.m.).

As part of the latest British invasion of U.S. television, CBS has picked up the award-winning animated special "Robbie the Reindeer in Hooves of Fire," but it will arrive on these shores missing much of its English accent.
