With a classic 'outsider' character, this is one of the best portraits of London laid bare. In arguably Mike Leigh's finest film, one of his finest characters Manchester Johnny (a career-best David Thewlis) embarks on a nocturnal odyssey through the destitute and despairing of the capital.
London locations aplenty, from Soho to Dalston with Charlotte Street the location for the Security Guard scene.
Showing as part of Roxy's Beefeater London Movies Season; 2 for 1 on all Beefeater drinks all evening.
