The Smiths new film 'England Is Mine' to close Edinburgh International Film Festival - Music-News.com

Edinburgh International Film Festival is delighted to announce that ENGLAND IS MINE will close the 71st edition of the Festival on Sunday 2nd July, 2017 at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh.

ENGLAND IS MINE takes audiences back to 1970s Manchester, where Steven Morrissey (Jack Lowden – Dunkirk, A United Kingdom, ’71), an introverted, uncompromising teenager, finds himself frustrated with his working-class existence.

With dreams of a successful music career being dampened by his run-of-the-mill job at the local tax office, Steven finds solace in the city’s underground gig scene where he meets Linder Sterling (Jessica Brown Findlay – Downton Abbey, The Riot Club) – an intelligent, self-assured artist – who encourages him to make his ideas of superstardom a reality.

Culminating in his first meeting with Johnny Marr, ENGLAND IS MINE, is a feature length biopic based on the early life of Morrissey, the outspoken former lead singer of seminal British band The Smiths. The film is directed by Academy Award® and BAFTA Award nominee Mark Gill (The Voorman Problem) and produced by Baldwin Li (The Voorman Problem) and Orian Williams (Control). Key cast will be in attendance on Closing night.

EIFF Artistic Director Mark Adams said: “Morrissey is one of Britain’s most iconic artists, and this delve into his formative years is a witty and enthralling look at a great music talent. The world premiere of ENGLAND IS MINE will be a perfect way to wrap this year’s Festival.”

Tickets will go on sale at 10 am on Friday 12 May through the EIFF website. For more information visit www.edfilmfest.org.uk.

This is bull ox! That fooking boke looks like Harry Potter not the Mayor of Malibu Steve Morrissey. I reckon Uncle Steve really has become a "lazy sunbather" half a world away in LA inn nn it. Reckon all his high powered attorneys in Century City were more excited than a Brit/Euro at the New York Yankees team store in New York to stop this release. Reckon out of sight, out of mind. Where the fook is Edenburrow?

Pretty good resemblance as far as I can see

I don't know why but I have a sneaking suspicion this film might actually be quite good...

I hope they invite him to watch a copy at home before a zillion people ask him questions about it. What a nightmare to have a movie made about your personal life while you're alive and have nobody reference YOU about it. Fame sucks ass.

I hope not.
I hope somebody in camp Moz leaks a straining order questions about the movie are forbidden, ha.
And their will be a denial about the straining order.
I wouldn't worrie about it Geezer, he has dealt with this before.
In fact, I will await his comment with some pleasure cause as far as we know now, nobody asked him yet. And he would violate his own straining order. How funny would that be? :D

I saw your proposal for the sequel you would like to see and I thought, why not? Heisenberg strikes again!
There is some strange and dangerous attraction to go Breaking Bad.
Only have to face the consequences.
We're all sinners anyway. :o

no, he was asked if he knew about it. And said something along the lines of not knowing much about it, or that he was not approached/asked to be involved in the film.

Yes, but that was before the movie was released.
Still curious about how he will react on questions after the premiere. :thumb:

He says he's 'Just waiting in the wings', but what he meant to say was... just waiting under his bridge.

As always get back in the 4kin mushroom cupboard. :handpointup: Or better still put us all out of our misery and end your days sooner than now in a motorway pile up. ( :praying: let us pray ).

Reckon me think there is a method to this madness and why Uncle Steve didn't stop the filming. Brits love the teenage long hair Steve and Smiths Steve before he went all Hollywood and became Mayor of Malibu. Boy with a Thorn single, Mporium UK. It makes sense. He still needs to be relevant for the 2021 Brit/Euro Tour. This movie is not a real life portrayal, because if it was, it would show all his teenage trips with his sister and aunt to the Grand Canyon, New York, Florida, Washington DC, and Disneyland.

ok ,I'm sorry, I'll delete my/that comment to you. done ! :)

Oh Ketamine Sun, I don't understand the hateful posts you sometimes receive while you're so courteous to me!
You didn't have to delete it, it wouldn't bother me at all.
You are too kind.

I'm fine, I'm doing very well and thanks for your kind concern Q q q :thumb:

I never pretended to know you and I am a mozbot but many people here missed, I think, another Benny, a kind Benny concerned for members or anonymouses who had serious health issues. Mozbots or haters, I don't care.
I did notice that and it tells me something. :thumb:

I fear that it for Smiths fans will be a sort of dissapointed, but again these are his bedroom years and spending time with Linder, long talks...I hope at least there are shots of gigs young Morrissey attended... it ends when Marr knock on the door on Kings Road, so...,but hope to get the chance to watch it in Dutch cinema

because we must
