BAFTA-nominated Stephen Graham (This is England) is Joseph, a barely on-the-wagon alcoholic whose precarious reality is knocked for six when his ex-partner moves abroad with their young son, from Liverpool to Australia, for a better life. With no immediate family to live for, Joseph is haunted by a past he has tried, for decades, to forget.

Featuring an original score by PJ Harvey, The Virtues is the latest production from Shane Meadows, whose multi-awarding winning work across film and television has wowed audiences across the globe since 1999's A Room for Romeo Brass and the multi-generational film-turned-TV series This Is England (2006 - 2015).

The Virtues won the Grand Prix and Stephen Graham took home Best Actor at Series Mania Lille 2019.
