SUMMIT, NJ - "England is Mine" the biopic of Steven Patrick Morrissey -- who went on to become the lead singer of The Smiths and known to the world simply as 'Morrissey' -- will receive its New Jersey premiere in Summit January 26, beginning at at 8 p.m.

Hosted by The Film Society of Summit, the screening will be followed by a discussion led by Lori Majewski, host on Sirius XM's 'Volume and First Wave' and author of the new wave oral history,Mad World

The film, directed by Mark Gill, offers a portrait of Morrissey and his early life in 1970s Manchester, England. Wanting to write and sing, the young Morrissey -- with the help of strong women -- embarks on a journey to become himself in a world that's trying to make him like everybody else. The movie’s star, Jack Lowden, one of the actors from “Dunkirk,” plays the man who would become Morrissey.

The Smiths were the first serious, critically-revered independent act with songs like “How Soon is Now,” “Meat is Murder,” and “Bigmouth Strikes Again.” The band made their debut in 1982 and by 1983, the band had earned a loyal following in their hometown of Manchester and had begun to make inroads in London. Their rise to the upper reaches of the British charts was swift and, as the band's frontman, Morrissey subverted many of the norms that were associated with pop and rock music.

Morrissey broke from rock tradition by singing in a keening, self-absorbed croon, embracing the forlorn romantic poetry of Oscar Wilde and publicly declaring his celibacy.

The program will be held at MONDO, located at 426 Springfield Avenue. Admission is $12 in advance, $14 at the door.  Advance tickets can be reserved by contacting summitfilm@gmail.com or purchased in-person at the venue. For further information, call 973-)885-1983 or visit summitfilmsociety.com.
