Filmmaker Carol Morley's exploration of Manchester in the early 1980s, and the five years of her life she lost to alcoholism.
Director Carol Morley put an ad in the paper looking for people who knew her in Manchester during her riotous youth. The people who came forward had quite a few opinions about the Carol they knew.
With a combination of archive material, candid interviews and lively characters, Morley pieces together a narrative of her Manchester escapades and past friendships.
This no-holds-barred portrait is pieced together by old pals, acquaintances and lovers – including. The Buzzcocks’ Pete Shelley – in a bold exploration of perception and memory, and how other people remember us.
