(Great Britain, 2005, 102 minutes)

The last months in the life of the Rolling Stones’ guitarist Brian Jones, as he retreats to his Sussex mansion, with the builder renovating the house becoming a sort of jack-of-all-trades valet. Uneasy cross between a two-hander gritty drama on class struggle in sixties England and a flashy rock biopic, with a dash of lurid “who killed Brian Jones?” sensationalism thrown in; there are interesting elements and general technical proficiency.
