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.
