Looking For Eric (2009) with Andrew Graves - Screenplay by Paul Laverty

Read more

‘Looking For Eric’ is a pretty unique film. A postal worker from Manchester in the middle of a personal crisis suddenly finds himself talking to the apparition of the legendary French player Eric Cantona, and attempts to turn his life around in order to have another shot at happiness. Paul Laverty’s screenplay is a reflection on aging, memory, mistakes, community, family and football. There was plenty to discuss in this episode, and I was joined by Andrew Graves, the author of the new book ‘Welcome to the Cheap Seats: Silver Screen Portrayals of the British Working Class’. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about this branch of cinema, from ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning’ to ‘This is England’. You can buy it here from the publisher, Five Leaves.

Sorry We Missed You with Paul Laverty | Picturehouse

Read more

Felicity Beckett talks to celebrated screenwriter Paul Laverty about his new film, Sorry We Missed You, directed by Ken Loach, in cinemas now. 

Set in Newcastle, Ken Loach’s new tale of predicament is about a family struggling to get on the housing ladder. In the Loach tradition, it’s fierce, open and angry: a film about the real human cost of our economic development.

Ricky is a labourer, proud of never having been on the dole, and his wife, Abby, is a contract nurse and carer. Despite working longer and harder, they realise they will never have independence or their own home. As their debts increase and as Abby faces exploitative pressures at work, even for a strong, loving family, life is becoming toxic. So, when the app revolution offers Ricky a golden opportunity, it’s now or never.
