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. Serkis plays Dury as a brash, no-nonsense and often confused man, whose rebellious nature made him a charismatic personality, terrible lover and great songwriter. Largely entertaining, but not without fault, much like Dury himself.
