Sometimes Brenda Blethyn is content merely to nibble the scenery. In Introducing the Dwights, a drippy Australian family comedy caper, she chomps it to a pulp until we long for her straightforward monstrosity as a mother in Little Voice. As Jean, a self-styled bawdy comedian (and once again a lousy parent), Blethyn kvetches in resentment at her derailed career. We're meant to laugh as her son (Khan Chittenden) manages his mum and his budding sex life. Instead, we root for him to emigrate. C
