England Is Mine (2017)



Critic Consensus: England Is Mine's smartly assembled cast and strong sense of place are often enough to compensate for this unauthorized biopic's distance from its subject.

Movie Info

Steven Patrick Morrissey wants to write and sing. But as a young man, his voice goes no further than the NME letters page and his dead-end office walls. When the punk scene explodes, Steven discovers there's more to life than dark satanic mills. With the help of strong women, the young Morrissey embarks on a journey to become himself in a world that's trying to make him like everybody else.

Critic Reviews for England Is Mine

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (23)

It is disarmingly modest in concept and self-mocking in tone, and so has not inflamed reviewers in quite the way Morrissey's own effort has. However, the fact it's unauthorised means that we don't get to hear his music.

March 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

March 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A handsome little biopic that's sopping wet with the same clichés that its whiny hero so adamantly disavows...

September 5, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

England is Mine is watchable but not special and those with the strongest interest in the story may be unhappy about what's missing.

August 26, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

For the majority, Lowden feels restrained by a director who has a very specific, flat vision of a musical legend.

August 25, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's unfortunate that Morrissey biopic England Is Mine can't quite expand its appeal past Smiths fans, because Jack Lowden is quietly effective at being profoundly malcontent.
