Movie Info

First brought together by their shared love of music, ten years later Liam and Natalie have reached a breaking point. Opposites attract, but aren't necessarily working long-term. Liam, a struggling musician, cannot let go of his vinyl collection and refuses to adapt to a world of smartphones and instant downloads. Natalie has let go of her dream of designing album covers and has become a rising star at her advertising firm. As they make the difficult decision to separate, they start by splitting their prized music library, but the soundtrack that defined their relationship keeps pulling them back together.


Critic Reviews for Modern Life Is Rubbish

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Mavor and Whitehouse, both of whom appear poised to break out after a series of smaller roles in TV and indie features, demonstrate a believable chemistry, but more importantly perhaps, a convincing hostility after their breakup.

While the flashback element of the film is solidly worked, the dialogue is clunky to the point where the romantic moments sound like a cliche-swapping contest, rather than heartfelt emotions.

April 4, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Gill's debut offers nothing but incessant needle-drops instead of drama; modern life may be rubbish, but there's no need for modern romances to be so utterly naff.
