I had the pleasure and the privilege of seeing the film before it’s release last Thursday. Needless to say it was thrilling. A truly entertaining, colourful and stylish portrait of a brilliantly poetic and eccentric man.
The performances were uniformly excellent, especially Andy Serkis as Ian Dury and Bill as his son Baxter. Also Charlotte, who you may recognise from Mixtape, is great, she plays Baxter’s sister Jemima, filling her with a quiet reserve, the antithesis to Baxter’s escalating behaviour.
I can’t recommend this film enough, so if you haven’t already seen it check it out as it’s really worth seeing on the big screen, Bill’s hair is something alone to behold…
