Tony Wilson: Now remember, we are live, so no swearing or they will cut you off.
Rob Gretton: What about “arse”?
Tony Wilson: What?
Rob Gretton: Is “arse” a swear word?
Tony Wilson: It’s a swear word.
Bernard Sumner: No it’s not.
Tony Wilson: Bernard, out there, I know “arse” isn’t a swear word. Here, in TV land, “arse” is most definitely a swear word. You trust me? I know all about swearing and TV. I’m a master of knowing when I can and when I can’t.
Peter Hook: What about “big dog’s cock”? Can you say that?
Tony Wilson: [shakes head] No.
Somehow this film has stayed completely off my radar but thanks to this post by Scott Feinberg, it is now not only on my radar, but quickly jumping to the top of my list of films I cannot wait to see. I’ve seen several of the other films Robert Redford has directed (not to mention acted in) and I love his style. The cast list reads like a dream: Robin Wright, James McAvoy, Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Jonathan Groff, Tom Wilkinson, Alexis Bledel, Johnny Simmons, Kevin Kline and Toby Kebbell.
Synopsis and more pictures after the cut.
