Storyline

Manchester, 1976. Stephen Patrick Morrissey is unemployed and depressed. He eventually finds work but it doesn't interest him. His only interest appears to be writing down his observations on life and people in a journal. We see his life over the next six years and how this period would have a bearing on his later life for, in 1982, he was to form The Smiths, one of the most influential bands of the 80s.

Trivia

The movie was filmed entirely on location in Stretford, Greater Manchester, UK, Steven Morrissey's home city, and the actual locations where the events in the movie took place. Some of the subways seen in the movie's title sequence have been destroyed and filled in by the local council since filming was completed, as part of the redevelopment of the road systems in Stretford. Only the one with steps visible at the end of the subway in shots in the film remains. The subway movie scenes thus now show a part of Morrissey's former home city that no longer exists, and the film itself has become an historical record of the neighbourhood and of Morrissey's youth.

A Wikipedia Page in Film
12 January 2018 | by simon-75049See all my reviews

What a disappointing pile of garbage. This film could have been so much more but all it did was take a few key events from wikipedia and make a movie. "If you have five seconds to spare, then I'll tell you the story of my life / Sixteen, clumsy and shy / That's the story of my life." The film was Clumsy in the making, shy in the facts and was a waste of more than 5 seconds of my life.
