'England is Mine': Morrissey biopic
England is Mine is the much-anticipated Morrissey biopic telling the story of the artist’s formative years growing up in post-industrial Manchester.
Following Morrissey’s award winning literary memoir, Autobiography the film is an unauthorised account of his life growing up in the 1970s and culminates in Morrissey's meeting with Johnny Marr.
The film’s title is taken from a lyric in The Smith’s Still Ill and will have its first screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in July.
The festival’s artistic director, Mark Adams said: “Morrissey is definitively one of Britain’s most iconic artists, and we are delighted to be exploring the enigma of his incredible life story.”
England is Mine stars Jack Lowden as Morrissey, Laurie Kynaston as Marr and is directed by Oscar nominee, Mark Gill.
‘England is Mine’ will premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2nd July.
