Storyline

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). As Ray's relationship blossoms, he begins to resent taking his pills, preferring to trust in the... Written by Anonymous

A fine British film that I fear not many people will see
26 August 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This really is a surprisingly good film - it's only just opened, and already the reviews are mixed. To me it's a refreshingly unsentimental and non-sensationalist portrait of schizophrenia. None of the characters is perfect, but none of them are irredeemable either, and there seems to be an underlying optimism about human nature. Despite what the previous reviewer wrote, I actually laughed quite a few times, as well as being moved at other times. The three main performances are all excellent, with Kelly Mcdonald especially good (why isn't this woman more well-known, why oh why??). The other characters are well portrayed too, especially Mandy the waitress. West London looks stunning (just kidding!), the filming and acting are naturalistic, and the music on the soundtrack is effective too. I hope the film makes it to the US.
