Steven Patrick Morrissey wants to write and sing. But as a young man, his voice goes no further than the NME letters page and his dead-end office walls.
When the punk scene explodes, Steven discovers there's more to life than dark satanic mills. With the help of strong women, the young Morrissey embarks on a journey to become himself in a world that's trying to make him like everybody else.
This should be an exercise in rock biiography for the big screen. What makes Mark Gill's debut interesting is that it is not. Jack Lowden (‘Dunkirk’) is committed as the young Morrissey, awkward in his shoes, fed-up with Manchester, and every bit as much of an intellectual snob as he is today. Wry, tasteful, and with a tangible sense of the era.
