Hull Independent Cinema presents England is Mine
A portrait of Steven Patrick Morrissey and his early life in 1970s Manchester before he went on to become lead singer of seminal 80s band The Smiths.
Steven Patrick Morrissey wants to write and sing. But as a young man, his voice goes no further than the NME letters page and his dead-end office walls. When the punk scene explodes, Steven discovers there’s more to life than dark satanic mills. With the help of strong women, the young Morrissey embarks on a journey to become himself in a world that’s trying to make him like everybody else.
