England Is Mine

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.Hide

The Press Reviews

  • Struggles to evoke the atmosphere of its setting - Manchester, 1976-1982 - and to bring its tantalisingly enigmatic subject into satisfying focus. Full Review

  • Gives Morrissey and Smiths fans a dose of what life was like for the brooding musician before his days as a leading front man. Full Review

  • It's decently and honestly acted by Jack Lowden, who keeps the film alive, but it somehow winds up being a story about always following your dream and never giving up and even has an inspirational speech from Morrissey's mum. Full Review

  • As an account of the Adrian Mole-like growing pains of the depressive young would-be artist, the film makes surprisingly poignant viewing. Full Review

  • Lowden and Findlay excel in their roles, but Mark Gill's Moz-movie needed more: both more music and more "people who are young and alive". Full Review

  • At certain points in the middle of it, you may think "I'm miserable now," though not in the way that Morrissey had in mind. Full Review
