Summary Seventeen-year-old Steven Patrick Morrissey is a shy dreamer amid the tough, macho world of 1970s Manchester; a world away from the life he’ll one day lead as the frontman for seminal 80’s band The Smiths. He spends most of his time writing savage music letters to the NME to avoid his parents’ deteriorating relationship until he reluctantly takes an office job he hates to support the family. His dream of being the lead singer of a band is put on hold. Encouraged by artist Linder Sterling, Steven forms ‘The Nosebleeds.’ Their first gig receives such a rapturous response that Steven starts skiving off work in favor of working toward a management deal. But things quickly fall apart for Steven: he’s fired from his job, Linden moves to London, and the management deal for ‘The Nosebleeds’ goes forward -- without him. Suddenly Steven has no money, no band, and no friends. Nominated for The Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film at the **Edinburgh International Film Festival**. Nominated for Best Feature Film at the **Milan Film Festival**. *"ENGLAND IS MINE handsomely filmed for the wide screen, is an auspicious debut for Gill. Even those unfamiliar with Morrissey and his contribution to popular culture should be captivated." - David Stratton, **The Australian***
