Shane Meadow’s Stone Roses documentary Made of Stone was revealed this week and, with tickets selling fast, it’s worth checking out the director’s past works as a storyteller – and there is no better place to start than with Dead Man’s Shoes. As luck would have it, Regal Film Club is hosting a special screening of the gritty psychological thriller this very evening. The story was originally conceived as a British superhero movie but quickly turned into a visceral revenge thriller about a man (Paddy Considine, pictured) returning from service in the British Army to track down the killers of his mentally impaired brother. With stand-out, career-making performances from Considine and Toby Kebbel, Dead Man’s Shoes is one of the best British films this century. Members of the cast, Neil Bell and Stuart Wolfenden (who played Soz and Herbie respectively), will be attending the event and are on hand to talk to audience members after the screening.
