The film's central character, Ray (Daniel Craig), has schizophrenia. The story begins with Ray's discharge from psychiatric hospital. Ray's devoted brother Pete (David Morrissey) picks him up and drives Ray to his new abode, the spare room in Pete's West London flat. Pete is a chef who works long hours in the café (a traditional 'greasy spoon' during the day and a trendy eatery in the evening) that he inherited from his father. He now has to find the time to take care of Ray and monitor the medication that controls the voices in his head. Ray is an intelligent, out-going young man. He soon falls for Laura (Kelly Macdonald), a Glaswegian girl in the midst of breaking up with her abusive boyfriend (Peter McDonald). Laura becomes attracted to Ray because of his spontaneity and his childlike sense of fun. Around this time, Pete also becomes involved in a relationship with Mandy (Julie Graham).

A disturbing and rewarding film, but don't expect any belly laughs or easy answers.
29 June 2000 | by (www.britfilm.00movies.com) – See all my reviews

Some Voices centres on Ray (Craig) and his release from a psychiatric hospital. His rehabilation starts fairly well, with Ray working for his protective brother Pete (Morrissey) in a restaurant. However, when Ray falls head over heels in love with Laura (McDonald), a wild Scottish girl, and stops taking his medication, matters spiral out of control. Directorial debutant Simon Cellan Jones has effectively captured the colour (mostly grimy) and energy of Shepherds Bush. However, this is an actors piece and as such Craig and McDonald shine. Especially, McDonald who brings a natural warmth to a difficult role. Ultimately, both a disturbing and rewarding film, but don't expect any belly laughs or easy answers.
