In this amusing biopic of Ian Drury, Whitecross sets up the story as a vaudeville act fronted by the musician in which fantasy, dreams and realism are mixed to discuss Drury's life in a thematic rather than chronological manner.

Largely entertaining, but not without fault, much like Dury himself.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
