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.

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.

Shame, what could have been..........
