Mike Leigh's violent and disturbing look at the milieu inhabited by London's homeless.

David Thewlis is the motor-mouthed protagonist Johnny Fletcher; bitter, cynical and on the run from Manchester after raping a woman.

He arrives in London, shacking up with his ex-girlfriend, Louise (Lesley Sharp), and her gothic flatmate, Sophie (Katrin Cartlidge), before drifting onto the streets - undergoing a series of encounters which convince him of the spiritual emptiness of modern life.

As with many of Leigh's films, the dialogue was often improvised by the cast.
