Morrissey’s feature-film directing debut is an adaptation of Brough and Elizabeth’s play ‘The Pool’, co-written with Morrissey and, like the play, starring the pair of them. Shot in late 2007 on a reported budget of £100,000, the film suggests that it may have been a stronger theatre production as neither Brough nor Elizabeth are fully convincing as film actors, he playing an unlikeable and unbelievable southerner on a trip to Liverpool, she a local lass with whom he strikes up a rapport. The strongest element is the sense of place as Morrissey shoots out and about in Liverpool. It’s a fair effort, but it’s hard to believe these actors had lived with these characters for so long. It doesn’t show.
