Directed by: Mike Leigh
Starring: David Thewlis, Lesley Sharp, Katrin Cartlidge, Greg Cruttwell, Claire Skinner
Synopsis: Johnny has run away from his problems in Manchester only to find similar ones in London.
It's harsh, nasty and mean. It begins with a rape and things don't improve from there. Johnny is an absolute train wreck and Thewlis' portrayal was stellar with amazing delivery of truly impressive monologues and difficult scenes. I didn't like the movie but it was really, really well done.Added 12 December 2004 at 10:14 PM
