The Commitments!My father took me to London on a business trip of his when I was 18. Walking by some theater one night by myself, there was a huge group of people milling about. Turned out it was the BAFTA awards letting out for the night. As I stood there with other people, Alan Parker stormed past muttering and cursing to himself. Shortly after, I managed to get Alan Rickman, who had won his own BAFTA that night, to sign an autograph and offhandedly mentioned how sour Parker looked. Rickman sighed and said that after Parker won the Best Directing BAFTA he dropped it after he left the stage and it broke apart into pieces. He said something along the lines of "I don't know what his problem is, it's not as if they won't send him a replacement."
WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY! Thanks for sharing that, FDotAnd yes of course you're right, it's The Commitments :)

"This is a tough, tough call, but considering I still dream about whole sections of it so many years after having seen it only once, I gotta give it to 2046."
"I've only seen a handful but my favorite is still Happy Together. I've been dying to see Chungking Express for ages though and have never been able to find it. "
