Caine's got spite stuff; Little Voice Premier, 8.30pm - 10.15pm.
Bracing British comedy, authentically coarse in Brenda Blethyn's magnificently brassy turn as Horrocks's mother, and wincingly cruel in Caine's beady-eyed portrayal of a drunken chancer careering down dead ends.
His spiteful rendition of Roy Orbison's mawkish old hit It's Over is the highlight of an old-fashioned but entertaining film. With Jane Horrocks, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Philip Jackson and Annette Badland. (1998) PPP
