MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH
Premiere: Hawaii Premiere
Director: Daniel Jerome Gill | Year: 2017 | Runtime: 105m
Country: United Kingdom | Language: English
Genre: Comedy, Music, Romance
With this witty and thoroughly engaging rom-com, director Daniel Jerome Gill’s debut film charts the relationship between Liam (Josh Whitehouse) and Natalie (Freya Mavor). Initially drawn together by their shared love for music, ten years later they are struggling to see what they saw in each other. As they start to split their music library, the soundtrack of their relationship keeps on pulling them back together. A real warm-hearted charmer of a film nicely adapted by Philip Gawthorne from his award-winning play and subsequent short film.
Named for the Blur album, MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH signals its intentions to play up its self-consciously muso roots from the get-go, featuring the likes of Frightened Rabbit and Radiohead early on. But for all the protagonist’s posturing as a martyr to the alternative rock cause, there is bags of room for radio fodder such as Stereophonics, The Kooks and The Vaccines. MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH is the feel-good-feel-bad rom-com for music nerds.
