I’m pleased as punch that the man Meadows took home a BAFTA t’other week, knocking at least Atonement’s force field of smugness into a cocked hat. Great news then, that he’s not been sitting around since This Is England came out last year. He’s already got two projects finished and ready to roll, and I can’t wait. One is “Le Donk” a feature length expanding the character Shane and Paddy Considine introduced us to a few years back in one of Shane’s anarchic back-to-basics shorts. Here’s a chunky trailer to slip your spoon into.
And an interview with Paddy here where he has a wee chat about it.
