Two working-class Brits spend their off-hours discussing dog races and Winston Churchill. They also read the tabloids and society pages. One day, they meet a movie star they’ve read about and proceed (without apparent reason) to savagely beat him.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Interesting filmed play. I've read people complain about Pacino's cockneye accent. I'm not saying it's as good as an actor who has it naturally or if a Gary Oldman type actor had done the role instead but people who think it takes them out of the movie are getting bogged down. Interesting rumination on envy and working class tension. Great dialogue.
