LOVE IS STRANGE … LOVE this version with Ewan McGregor!! Soooo sweet!
"Lipstick on Your Collar" (1993) , UK Channel 4 mini-series , Written & Produced by Dennis Potter
Ewan McGregors first acting role, done 6 months from completing acting school, and he never looked back.
A tale of youthful lust, against a backdrop of the 1956 Suez crisis and national service. Interspersed with some great music from the start of the Rock & Roll era, which, for some reason the cast just start singing along to. Seems silly, and it is, but it works, and adds the right touch to the storyline, reflecting all those times when you wish life was a musical. (IMDb)
"I like the sort of music where "moon" don’t rhyme with "June," and you’re not up to your backside in bloody buttercups. Songs that aren’t about your mum and dad. A bit rough. A beat that busts up the old way…the old stodge…the empire…and knowing your place, and "excuse me," and dressing up, and doing what you’re told, and not once being asked! " (Private Hopper ”Ewan McGregor”) (IMDb)
