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 record store owner in the movie is played by Nigel Young, the real-life owner of the Reel Around The Fountain Records shop in Stretford Arndale shopping centre. Reel Around The Fountain Records is named after a song written by Morrissey and Johnny Marr on the Smiths debut album, the fountain in question was in the Stretford Arndale centre, inspiring Nigel to name his shop after it. The movie producers fitted out an empty shop unit in the upper level of Stretford Arndale as a 1970s record shop to use as the set for the film, Nigel's actual shop was in the lower level at the time of filming in 2016 but he assisted in creating the filming set. Since then, the redevelopment of the shopping centre has seen Reel Around The Fountain Records move to a new unit in the upper level, a curious case of life imitating art. See more »

Quotes

Steven Patrick Morrissey: If there was ever a revolution in England, we'd form an orderly queue at the guillotine.Nothing worth doing in life involves repetition. It's the mind that matters. The mind allows us to think and feel and see the beauty of things where others can only see crank bearings and spark plugs.

The negative of what could've been............
7 January 2018 | by Clipster12See all my reviews

A film/docudrama about the early days of The Smiths/Morrissey. When this is set, in the late 70's, if you took a photograph and had it developed you would have got a photo and a negative copy. This film is like the negative of the events. It's like the uninteresting part of something special...... and don't get me wrong . The Smiths were special, in every sense of the word. Shame, what could have been..........
