Local born director Shane Meadows is expected to
attend along with some of the film's stars, Rhys Ifans, Shirley
Henderson, Finn Atkins and writer Paul Fraser.
With a cast including Robert Carlyle, Kathy Burke
and Ricky Tomlinson, hopes are high that Once Upon A Time In The
Midlands will cross over into the mainstream and become just as
big a hit as Meadows first major feature film TwentyFourSeven which
starred Bob Hoskins.
Once Upon A Time... tells the story of Shirley
and her two suitors - Dek and Jimmy.
Throw into the equation a daughter, estranged husbands,
boyfriends and sisters and it's clear the path of true love is never
going to run smoothly.
