113 min

Cert: 15

Starring: Andy Serkis, Naomie Harris, Bill Milner
Dir: Mat Whitecross
Biopics tend to make light of the shortcomings of their subjects and magnify their achievements. Mat Whitecross does neither. It is arguable that this film is as much an analysis of the selfdestructive nature of genius than a biopic and uses the life of Ian Dury as its argument.

Dury was a brilliant musician and showman. He was charismatic but also capable of psychological cruelty; generous and yet totally self‐centred. This a fascinating film that charts the rise to fame of a man physically damaged by polio as a child but who had the strength and selfish, single‐mindedness to succeed in the tough unforgiving world of rock music.

Perfect Sunday – Premiere

Written and directed by Caitlin Sneddon
Starring Marcus Copinger
