Storyline

Alexander McKay is relaunching his career as a singer songwriter when his girlfriend, Jen, sick of his excessive drinking, throws him out. He winds up on the street, homeless and hung over, but is offered a lifeline when an old friend, Rachel, lets him sleep in her flower shop van and try to get his life back on track. At first it seems as though Alex might take the chance he's been given, write some songs, and take advantage of a new gig playing at a prestigious club which could also secure him a recording deal. But Alex can't get over Jen, fantasizes about her as the perfect woman, and little by little the drinking takes over. Eventually he is booed off stage because he's too drunk to remember the words of his own songs, forcing his new manager to dump him. When Alex sees Jen with one of his friends it is the final straw, and he tries to drown himself, only to be saved by a passing jogger. Rachel reads him the riot act, reveals her own alcoholic past, and gets Alex to start ... Written by Don Macnab-Stark

Terrific!
8 February 2018 | by simonjburrows-21235See all my reviews

I just got around to seeing to seeing this film for the very first time yesterday, so apologies for being late in the process!

Anyway, I just wanted to say how much I loved watching this! From the brilliant acting, the great camera work, and remarkable score throughout the movie, I was hooked!

This is a great story of how someone can change their life around no matter how many chances you give them, and what obstacles stand in their way, they will always "come good" in the end. A true masterpiece of film. I will be watching this again and again.
