Synopsis

Johnny flees Manchester for London, to avoid a beating from the family of a girl he has raped. There he finds an old girlfriend, and spends some time homeless, spending much of his time ranting at strangers, and meeting characters in plights very much like his own.

Our take

An unforgettable David Thewlis propels Mike Leigh’s searing classic with gripping, manic dark humor and a probing, desperate search for life’s meaning, garnering the actor and the director with much deserved awards at Cannes.
