In 1970’s Manchester, 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 origins story based on the early life of Morrissey, the outspoken former lead singer of seminal British band The Smiths. Directed by Academy Award and BAFTA Award nominated Mark Gill (The Voorman Problem) and produced by Baldwin Li (The Voorman Problem) and Orian Williams (Control), the film will have its world premiere at the closing night of this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival on Sunday 2nd July.

It also stars Jodie Comer, Simone Kirby, Peter MacDonald, Katherine Pearce, and Vivienne Bell.

The UK release date is 4th August 2017.

Sadly the trailer appears to be geolocked so you may not be able to watch it if you are outside the UK.
