This volume offers a detailed and comprehensive analysis of British film culture from 1997 to the present. Using a wide range of films from the Blair era and beyond as case studies—from from Notting Hill (1999) and Billy Elliot (2000) to 28 Days Later (2002) and The Queen (2006)—it examines the ways in which recent British filmmaking might be regarded as distinctive, relevant and successful.
