"The pathetically shy LV lives the life of a recluse listening to her late fathers old records in her room and in the process driving her abusive, loud-mouthed mother, Mari Hoff, to distraction. At night, however, when her father's ghost visits, LV sings the songs of the great divas such as Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and Shirley Bassey. One evening LV is overheard by one of her mother's loathsome boyfriends, the disastrous dead-end talent scout Ray Say, who recognizes her innate talent and realizes this is his last big chance for the glittering prizes. Gambling everything Ray Say forces LV to appear at a local run-down, seedy night club run by Mr. Boo. As preparations for the big event proceed apace LV meets the equally shy Billy, a pigeon-racing telephone engineer and they form a tentative, gentle friendship. The big night finally arrives and everything is in readiness the band, the club and even a big agent from London, but what about LV?"--IMDb.

Loved this film! Great music and singing!
It's so rare to see quiet (or introverted or agoraphobic) people portrayed well. "Never spoke up because I couldn't get a word in!"

I enjoyed this little film, "little" in its quaint production touches and modest budget. But the characters are vividly drawn, particularly Brenda Blethyn's and Michael Caine's. Jane Horrocks is pretty darling, too, as a mousy woman who discovers some of the lion within. But the strong language and often campy depiction of seamy North Yorkshire life make it not for children.

Horrible movie, mercy! The only notable thing about watching this movie is that after nearly 50 years of movie going it's really unusual to see a film completely unlike any other movie I've ever seen. It joins El Topo and South Park - The Movie in that rare realm. Almost every character is repellant, vulgar, crude, rude and/or has a serious psychological disorder. One scene is reminiscent of The Exorcist. Has an occasional chuckle but otherwise it's a depressing film; very strange film. Be forewarned! Excellent actors (such as Michael Caine and Brenda Blethyn) don't make the cut when acting in a film with a miserable script ~

Early in the movie I had to skip to the end credits because I couldn't believe my ears. That is actually Jane Horrocks singing as Shirley Bassey and Judy Garland. The rest of the cast and story only serve to set up the amazing Ms Horrocks. That girl has pipes!
