Distant Voices: Still Lives

Loading...
"The film is made up of two separate films, shot two years apart, but with the same cast and crew. The first section, 'Distant Voices', chronicles the early life of a working-class Catholic family living under a domineering father. The second section, 'Still Lives', sees the children grown up and emerging into a brighter 1950s Britain, only a few years from rock and roll and The Beatles, yet somehow still a lifetime away.

Matt, banished from Harvard when his roommate sets him up as a drug-bust patsy, relocates to England, reconnecting with his sister Shannon.

At first the butt of jokes, Matt is inexorably sucked in by these mad, bad, dangerous-to-know Hammers fans and into the black hole of thuggery, first hoisting incalculable pints, singing indecipherable anthems, preparing, again and again, to war on the terraces of the home turf for nothing much at all.
