Once Upon a Time in the Midlands

2002

Shane Meadows
Director

Domestic drama with strait-laced Ifans and bad boy Carlyle competing for the affections of the same lass. Badly wants to be a Mike Leigh film, but lacks the requisite punch and humour. Henderson is a delight, but the film ultimately annoying.
