Shane Meadows has made a career of chronicling the messy complications of regular life. Whether it's in his ongoing "This Is England," or in efforts such as "Somers Town" and "Twenty Four Seven," the filmmaker has taken an observational and personal approach to storytelling. But for this latest effort, he turns the camera to a close friend, the result is "The Living Room," and you can watch the whole thing right now. Running just a shade under forty-minutes, the documentary — which circles back to a few years ago — focuses on Gavin Clark, Meadows' friend, musician, and former member of Clayhill, and his battle to return to the stage. He begins by hosting a series of solo living room concerts, and after his music for Meadows' "Somers Town" gets critical acclaim, he makes his way back on the big stage once again. Check out the low-key film below. »
