Robert Carlyle, Alexia Rasmussen, Kathleen Wilhoite, A Martinez, Michael Des Barres, Danny Masterson / Fiction / English

A former legend of the Britpop scene struggles to forget his past and maintain his life in the USA. Robert Carlyle portrays the once successful musician who has settled into a life of farm work and anonymity in an effort to control his demons. What weighs greatest on his mind is the untimely death of his brother and bandmate. Eventually a drunken conviction and the threat of deportation shatter his emotional isolation and force him to face his past.

    Are there plans to record and put on the internet for those of us not in the UK?

    Oops, sorry. I was referring to Mr. Carlyle's interview. Commented in the wrong place.
