England is Mine

Scottish actor Jack Lowden (Fighting With My Family, Calibre) stars alongside English actors Jodie Comer and Jessica Brown Findlay in this muted, and fittingly-mopey biopic of strong-minded musician Morrisey. Mancunian director Mark Gill deftly manages to capture something of the soul of his hometown in the 70s and that of his brooding subject.





Steven Patrick Morrissey (Jack Lowden) has designs on being a singer-songwriter, but in mid-70s Manchester he is mainly occupied by sending scathing reviews to music magazines. Encouraged by his artist friend Linder Sterling (Jessica Brown Findlay) he starts writing songs and tries to find his way, and voice, in the world.
