Once Upon A Time In The Midlands - Movie Release & Trailer

Once Upon A Time In The Midlands
The Biggest British Film of 2002?

Get ready for one of the biggest British films of all time – Once Upon A Time In The Midlands. The film features a star-studded cast including Robert Carlyle, Rhys Ifans, Kathy Burke, Shirley Henderson and Ricky Tomlinson and introduces Finn Atkins.

Dek (Rhys Ifans) and Shirley (Shirley Henderson) live together with 12 year-old Marlene (Finn Atkins), her daughter by the sexy delinquent Jimmy (Robert Carlyle), who skeddadled years ago and hasn’t been heard from since. Decent-but-dull Dek loves Shirley, so much so that he humiliates her by proposing without warning on national television.

Like every other person Shirley has ever met, Jimmy witnesses Dek’s TV proposal and he returns to town, convinced that his nerdy rival doesn’t stand a chance against a renewed romantic assault from the great love of her life. While Shirley seems destined to succumb to Jimmy’s charms, he hasn’t reckoned on the formidable resistance from their daughter Marlene, his sister Carol (Kathy Burke), her estranged husband Charlie (Ricky Tomlinson), their sons Emerson and Lake, Carol’s daughter Donna, her boyfriend Donut…Nor could he anticipate a heroic, last-minute challenge from the mild-mannered, love-sick Dek…

Once Upon A Time in The Midlands was co-written by Shane Meadows and Paul Fraser, who previously collaborated with the director Meadows on “A Room for Romeo Brass” and “TwentyFourSeven”.

Running Time: 104 mins
