Once Upon a Time in the Midlands
Source: Catholic News Service
Quirky melodrama about a timid garage owner (Rhys Ifans), who discovers that love is worth fighting for when his live-in girlfriend's former lover, a two-bit hood named Jimmy (Robert Carlyle), returns to reclaim her. Incorporating classic Western motifs into the film's British working-class setting, director Shane Meadows combines good performances with a sweet, at times trite, narrative, resulting in a modest but big-hearted tale about the fortifying power of love and the true meaning of family. Some slapstick violence and recurring rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
