    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.

      "Linder" looks pretty good. "Steven" could've affected an underbite like Billy Bob Thornton did in Slingblade.

      gives me a giggle to think this is actually going through.

      Must be difficult being a living icon. Though I guess one could just play dead and ignore this fiction masquerading as a biopic. Yes I know they'll exercise poetic license, but will it be poetry?

      I suspected that.

      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?

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

      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.
